Hey friends, it's almost time to honor Dad for everything he has done for us, all the times he's been there and for just bein' Dad. Well, today I wanted to share a fun card that I made for my Dad using Rinea's Foiled Papers in Ruby, Ebony, Silver and a touch of Gold.
There are several "tool" dies on the market so be sure to check them all out to see which tools suit your needs.
Step 1 - Cut a sheet of Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper 4 1/2" x 5 3/4".
Step 2 - Emboss this panel using a Diamond Plate embossing folder.
Step 3 - Trim the panel to 4" x 5 1/4" and mount on a black card blank.
Step 4 - Cut a piece of the Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper 3" x 4" and (4) strips 1/2" x 2 5/8" for drawers.
Step 5 - Run the 3x4" piece through a Xyron and affix to a piece of cardstock to add some bulk.
Step 6 - Adhere the 1/2" strips to the large rectangle approximately 1/4" apart using double stick foam tape. This will make the drawers look like they are slightly open.
Step 7 - Cut four slivers of Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper 1/8" x 2 5/8" and adhere to the tops of each drawer.
Step 8 - Hand cut or punch out two little circles from the Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. Affix them to the bottom of the toolbox.
Step 9 - Affix the toolbox to the card using double stick foam tape.
Step 10 - Die cut the set of tools twice, once from Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and once from Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.
Step 11 - Where appropriate, trim the "handles" from the black die cuts and glue them to the silver tools. I used a bit of gold behind the measuring tape for a bit of contrast.
Step 12 - Glue the tools in the drawers, on top of the toolbox and hanging off the side as desired.
