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!

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.

Great card for the sketch! The embossing background gives it a look of a pegboard - nice idea!

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