April Blog Hop ~ Card 3

This month we are challenging you to create a project that features something tilted.  

The 3rd stamp set I bought in April is Handy Hardware. It is so CUTE. I was going to save a few $$ and not get it but my AWESOME husband who is so supportive of my addiction told me to buy it, so I did!!! And let me tell you I am so glad. ADORABLE!!!

I used the stamps and 2 narrow strips of True Black and Smokey Shadow card stock to form my angle. I used Fillable Frames #1 but cut it down by putting it back in the die, scooted one side over the cutting edge and re-cut it. The sentiment is stamped on Jar Labels 2. I cut and stamped all of the tools. I was going to leave out the saw but I thought the card needed it, so... I die cut and stamped one and then cut the handle from the blade. I used it as a mask so it had 2 colors. I was being careful when I inked the stamp so I inked it lighter than I intended. It came out a little uneven but I REALLY like it that way. Sort of vintage-y. The panel is mounted on Smokey Shadow card stock and then on a white card.
Any tool-lovin' Dad would love this card.

Thank you for looking at my blog!
