Yesterday we celebrated Father's Day here in Australia, so the latest challenge which starts today over at Cards in Envy had perfect timing. The Theme is A Manly Challenge.
Back in June when I visited Melbourne to catch up with some of my online crafty friends we visited some of the local scrapbooking stores and one of the many items I purchased was this ever so cute Tool Charms Die from Die Namics. This challenge gave me an excuse to use it.
All the men in my life love their tools, my dad started his working life as an apprentice carpenter and has a passion for wood work, whilst my husband likes to tinker and did a lot of the renovations to our old house himself. So it was actually their tool shed I took some inspiration from for my card today.
I used the de-bossed side of my Swiss Dots embossing folder to resemble a peg board and incorporated two types of tape I found at the hardware store to create my card. The mesh tape is for joining plaster sheets and for my actual tools I have used an Adhesive Aluminium Tape that is used for roofing.
