My Creative Time: Manly Monday

Hi today is Manly Monday over on the My Creative Time Blog. Today, I have a fun little gift card holder to share for the Mr. Fixit in your life.

The little Embossed Gift Card Holder was first cut out of kraft card stock. Red and white card stock mats were cut out using the More Stitched Rectangular Dies. They were layered and adhered onto the gift card holder.

The tools and tool box from the Greatest Handyman Stamp Set, were stamped and cut out using the coordinating dies. The tool box was paper pieced out of craft card stock and the rest of the tools were colored in with Copic markers. The sentiment, "Mr. Fixit!", was stamped onto the front of the tool box. The little tools were added to the tool box and then the whole thing was pop dotted onto the front of the gift card holder.

The sentiment,"Happy Birthday, was stamped at the top of the card using black embossing powder and embossing ink. The two little washers were added on both sides of the sentiment. To finish the card, two little mini sequins were added to the tool box.
