Here is the card I made for my Dad's birthday. My family owns a hardware store, so it is perfect! I saw a heart like this on the boards at convention, and remembered it and decided to make it for my Dad.
I used a lot of different things while "building" this card. I used the new Woodgrain Background stamp for the boards, Totally Tools stamp set for the tools, Brushed Silver card stock for the tool's accents, brads as the nails and Fundamental Phrases stamp set for the greeting.
I made the background by just taking a piece of Creamy Caramel card stock and rubbing the Creamy Caramel Classic Ink pad directly on the paper. I think it gave it a nice manly background...what do you think?
Here is a close up so you can see the detail a little better. What a fun card this was to make!
Thanks for looking!
