Today is my husband’s birthday, and as you may remember from past cards that I have made for him, woodworking is his passion. I was super excited to see the new Tool Shed background stamp in the big Idea Book & Catalog, with its images of retro tools. I bought it to make cards for Steve, and was super excited to use it for the first time on this birthday card. I really wanted to use my new Simply Scored scoring board, so I made a gate-fold card.
Stamps: Tool Shed, Wood Grain, Upsy Daisy
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Island Indigo
Paper: Island Indigo, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Other: Simply Scored, Decorative Label Punch, Square Lattice Textured Impression Embossing Folder, Big Shot
Wondering how I got the layers on the Decorative Label Punch? I punched out two extras of each color to make the mats. I cut one lengthwise, and one width-wise, and then glued them to the back so a bit of the edge showed.
