Tool Father's Day Card

Now that Mother's Day is past, it is time to start thinking about Father's Day! Not that I know what to get my husband or dad for the occasion, BUT I do know what cards they will be getting! That deserves a brownie point or two, doesn't it? LOL! I decided to use the wonderful SVG files from the Tool Box Bundle Package at ScrappyDew. There are loads of tools in this set, but I just picked two for this particular card.
The background paper was a perfect match and is from DCWV's Guy Stack. It doesn't show up on the picture, but all the little tools have a shiny epoxy finish to them. The vertical banner was plain cardstock that I embossed using a diamond plate cuttlebug folder and then inked it with black ink.
I also sent some of these to Operation Write Home for the troops to send back home to their dads. I hope they enjoy them as much as I did making them.
So if you have a little extra time this weekend, maybe see what you can create for the guys in your life!

Have a wonderfully crafty day!
