Hello everyone.  Happy Father’s Day to all the fabulous fathers / father figures celebrating today.  Since losing my dad a couple years ago, I have stopped making Father’s Day specific cards, but masculine cards are always handy to have.  I am using the Toolbox 3D embossing folder (EF) with coordinating dies from the 2023 Spring collection to create a simple masculine card good for many occasions.  

The toolbox was created from Kraft woodgrain paper.  The back base layer is 3”x1.5” and the two boards are 3”x0.75”.  Inked and shaded them with Kraft dye ink and/or Gathered Twigs distress ink.  For the handle, started with a 3”x1” piece and die cut with the smallest A2 Rectangle Frames die.  When assembling it, left a small space in between the boards.  Used a circle hole punch to punch from brown cardstock for the nails.


The tools were die cut from silver Pastel Mirror paper and various color cardstock using the coordinating EF dies.  Ran all the pieces through the die cutting machine in the EF to give them details and dimension.  I think next time instead of die cutting fromin different color cardstock, I would just die cut from white and color the necessary parts in with Copic markers.  The background panel is white woodgrain paper dry embossed with the Toolshed 3D EF.  White heat embossed the sentiment from Poppy Stamps Birthday Blowout on black cardstock, then assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.  


That does it for my card today.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful week.
