I think a good name for this card is Tools and More Tools. Now personally, I do not know how to use many of the tools out in my husband's shed. He has a lot of tools let me tell you. Yet somehow he always seems to need more. I guess it is like my card making habit. I always find something new that I want to get.
I started with a base card of Garden Green measuring 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2". Next I cut a piece of More Mustard card stock to be 4" x 5 1/4". I ran it through my big shot using the Stripes impression folder. I sponged the edges with More Mustard ink and even sponged the front of the piece a little. I adhered it to the green base using runner adhesive.
Next I took a piece of Basic Black card stock and ran it through the big shot to cut out the Top Note shape. I used the same die and cut out a Basic Gray one too. On the gray one, I followed the perforation the is around the edge and cut it off. Then I ran the top note through the big shot using an impression folder called Diamond Plate. Once impressed, I layered it inside the black top note using runner adhesive and attached it to the mustard with runner adhesive too.
Then came the tools. I used a stamp set that is retiring at the end of May (next week) that is called Totally Tool. I use this set a lot for men. I stamped the little tools onto Whisper White card stock using StazOn ink. I then colored them in using my colored pencils. Then came the hard part. I cut each one out including holes in the handles. They are attached to the gray diamond plate using liquid glue.
For the greeting, I used a stamp from a retired set called King of the Grill. I stamped the message in Garden Green ink and punched it out with the modern label punch. Next I sponged the edges with green ink and added a black brad to each side of the saying. I adhered it to the card using dimensionals.
Well that's it for today! I hope you feel a little inspired. Remember you can still order this set through next Thursday if you like it. I will return tomorrow with another card for Father's Day. I hope to see you all then. Thanks for dropping by today!!
