Today is my father-in-law's birthday. We call him "Pa". Whenever I need some help with a project at home, for example installing the new dishwasher, when hubby and I run into problems, we ask Pa for help.
He's a jack of all trades, had many different jobs, and like most fathers, knows everything.
So I figured I needed to make him a card to celebrate his birthday and his handyman know-how.
The colors I selected were based on this week's color throw-down challenge of Certainly Celery, Tangerine Tango and Basic Gray.
To create the background I used two pieces of metallic heat tape that I had purchased at the hardware store. I put in on a piece of gray cardstock and then ran through the Big Shot using the Hexagon embossing folder. The crescent wrenches are made using the word window, mini flower and 1" circle punches. The handle is a piece of gray 2.5" x 1/2". I used some black stazon ink to add some shading and to stamp the sentiment.
I think he is going to love this card.
Would love to hear your comments!
