Good Tuesday Tutorial Morning to you. This is Lisa. I hope you had a restful Memorial Day weekend. I called my Marine son this weekend and had a mundane conversation with him...something I am very thankful for. He came back safely from his deployment to Apghanistan last summer. He is healthy and well. I am thankful for all the brave men and women that choose to serve our country and protect our freedom.
Now to my traditional shout out to our Katie....Hi Katie-Kate. Thank you to everyone that left a nice comment on my last tutorial: Sandy Ang, Jan Hunnicutt, Candy Fosta, Grace N, Chrissy, Joie McGill, Robin Burgeson, PAT(mspfd).
Today we'll be making a Toolbox Birthday card. You can make this feminine or masculine by changing the colors. At the bottom of my post are examples from Lori and I of ways to use this file to make a toolbox, treasure chest, recipe box and toybox. So many possibilities.
Cut out chest card shape ...I used the SVG file, my Cricuit Expression and SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot Program) from Night Eclipse Cardstock. I made my card shape in SCAL to be approximately 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I made card shape by welding two chest outside shapes together in SCAL.
Cut front pieces. Your black card base will act as a mat for these pieces.
Wipe each piece with the anti-static pouch to keep embossing powder from sticking to places other than your stamped image. Heat emboss using heat tool, Heavy Metal stamp and clear embossing powder.
Next, sponge the edges (I did more on the edges and a little on the rest) with Hot Cocoa Palette Ink pad for a slightly rusty look.
Adhere pieces to cade base.
Take a scrap of Cottonball White cardstock 3 1/2 x 1 1/4 and stamp the Circular Saw Individual stamp in Pucker Up Palette Ink. Then stamp the sentiment from the Yard Yabber set in Momento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink.
Mat with a 3 5/8 x 1 3/8 piece of Night Eclipse.
Place a mini silver brad in center of the saw where the small circle is.
Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front with dimensionals.
Cut out two slightly smaller chest shapes so you have a 1/8" mat all around and adhere to the insides. Then stamp Happy Birthday from the Yard Yabber set by inking up with Momento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink and stamping three consecutive times. I love how this looks.
YAY! You did a marvelous job. What a great audience. See you next time.
