Hi from Jack!

Hi friends! A very Happy Tuesday to you! I hope you’re having an awesome day! It has been a beautiful one here! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m back with another card to share that I created for the new release over at Prickley Pear Stamps! I mentioned a few days ago that the owners’ son and daughter-in-law have kids named Jack and Lily, and the new Jack and Lily Collection is all about them! I created an adorable friendship card featuring the Hello Jack stamp set with coordinating Hello Jack die set! This card is a side fold (you know how love fun folds), and I did something with this stamped image that I’ve never done before… I scored the flat two-dimensional image and creased his legs so he could sit on a brick wall! LOL, I absolutely love how this turned out!

I cut the side fold card base from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock and coordinating papers from Crafter’s Companion Just For Men Urban Collection. I adhered the panels together and adhered them to the card base, added some twine tied in a bow, and then fashioned the sitting part of the brick wall.

Using the Hello Jack stamp set, I stamped Jack, his clothing and toy airplane on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating Hello Jack die set. I scored Jack’s legs in two places, folded on the score lines, and adhered him to the card front sitting on the brick wall. I adhered his toy airplane and stamped the sentiment to complete the card front.

I typed the sentiment on the laptop and printed it on Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, then trimmed the panel and embellished it with strips cut from the patterned paper and CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock, and finally layered it on gray cardstock.

And one more peek… this is such a fun fold and I sure do love it with this adorable little guy gracing the front of it!
