Father's Day cards

Fathers Day Tool box for the most wonderful husband of all...MINE!  My talented husband can fix anything!  I think growing up on a farm was a wonderful place to acquire new skills!  He's not afraid to try to fix anything!  I LOVE HIM TO INFINITY & BEYOND!  I can't remember where I saw this card.  I had to add guess at the dimensions.  I used the STAMPIN UP large background stamp "Woodgrain".  I used silver embossing powder on the metal tool parts.  I used green, red and brown embossing powder on the rest of the tool parts.  Sentiment was from STAMPIN UP "TEENY TINY WISHES" stamp set.  Silver brads were put on the four corners to add realism to the toolbox. 

I used retired STAMPIN UP stamps from 1996.  Don't have the correct names as I purchased these at a garage sale!

A wonderful Fishing Vest card that was seen on Splitcoaststampers.com under the Stampin Up site.  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showgallery.php?si=fishing+vest&cat=&x=0&y=0

I used the STAMPIN UP paper piercing tool to make the holes on the vest.  I used a brown marker to draw a line from the holes that pierced the paper to look like they were sewn on the card.  Buttons were added to give a 3-dimensional look to the card. STAMPIN UP stamps used on the Fishing Vest from 2002 FLY FISHING stamp set.


Hope you Enjoyed!
