Woot – just so happens chance I needed to whip up a birthday card for a friend who is a true carpenter, has literally built custom furniture for our home and so when I saw The Male Room Challenge #97 and the theme being TOOLS well, I got quiet excited (imagine lots jumping up and down in this house…) because I have two nice Forever in Time stamp sets which are totally tools! A great fit. I paired the stamps with a backdrop of Bo Bunny Back to Basics DP in woodgrain. I built upon a black cardstock base. I used a Stampin’ Up birthday sentiment, poofing it out in the middle with a triple layer of foam tape and tacking the ends down. (you can’t really see how the sentiment kind of “wows” out in the center, almost 3d) I stamped and fussy cut the tools, colored them with Tombow Markers. I bumped out the Hammer and glued the nails down.
Lacking a stamped sentiment to say something to pull this card together I improvised my own!
Have YOU ever hand written your own sentiment inside a card?
