Manly Monday…

I’ve wanted to make a male card using “Totally Tool” with the background embossed to make it look like a board.  After checking out the sketch SSC149 this is what I have come up with.

My Card –
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Totally Tool, Best Yet
Ink – Basic Gray, Old Olive
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Basic Gray, Old Olive
Punches – 1 3/4″ Circle, 1 1/4″ Circle, 1/16″ Handheld
Embossing Folder – SU Perfect Polka Dots
Accessories – Brads, Big Shot, Grosgrain Ribbon – Old Olive, Snail Adhesive, Sponge
Non-SU – Alfoil
To ensure the end result was a little stronger, I run 2 layers of Alfoil through the Embossing Folder.  This gave me a little more strength to work with.
 I’ve stamped the screwdriver onto Very Vanilla Cardstock &
punched a hole through the top of screwdriver, attached a silver brad so that it looks like it is hanging from the wall.
I then sponged a little of Basic Gray & Old Olive around so that it seems like there is a little oil, etc on the board.
To carry the theme through, I punched a hole through the “o” in “You” for a silver brad
Until next time, Enjoy!

  1. The foiled background looks just like one of those tool boxes in the back of a pickup track. So cool!!!!

    Thanks for playing along with the Stamping 411.

  2. I love the embossed background, and the brad through the wrench, it looks like it's hanging on a workshop wall! Great job 🙂
