So I decided to create a fun card for my dad using this wonderful stamp set along with some other awesome MCT products!

For my card base along with my background mats, I used the Stitched Squares Inside and Out. I then cut out the cute little apron using the Stitched Apron Dies. I decided to create a bigger pocket at the top. So I just used the cut out from the top of the apron for that. I created the drawstrings by using the balloon string dies from the Best Bots Forever Stamp Set. I then cut out the little mini tools and added them to the pockets. They were cut using the Cricut Handyman Cartridge. I added it to the card and put a little silver jewel to make it look like it is hanging off of it. 

Then I used the Bunch of Stitched Stars to create a coordinating star embellishment. I added a silver jewel to it as well. I then Finished the card by adding the sentiments from the You're My Hero Stamp Set.

Thank you so much for stopping by!! For more design team inspiration please head on over to Miss Emma's blog.
