Father's Day Card for My Brother

I made with card in consultation with my mother; she will be giving this card to my brother for Father's Day.

While checking Facebook the other day, I came across a post where if you commented on it you had the opportunity to win an SVG from My Treasured Kutz (link is to their Facebook page). Unfortunately the contest is over (and I did not win), but while visiting their Facebook page I found an SVG freebie that My Treasured Kutz (link to their store) was offering. It was the Dad's Workbench Background Card Plus Envelope SVG Digital Cut File (MTK-DC-1073) and I think you still might have a couple of days to download it as their freebie.

I used CTMH's You're The Best Stamp Set to decorate the front of my card. I used Flaxen Exclusive Ink™ in second generation and Olive Exclusive Ink™ on Colonial White cardstock which was then layered on Olive cardstock.

I used Thin 3-D Foam Tape to attach the back of the workbench to the card so the "pegs" were more visible.

The SVG for Dad's Workbench Background Card Plus Envelope SVG Digital Cut File (MTK-DC-1073) has a coordinating metal die My Treasured Kutz MTK-CK-4091 "Honey Do" Tools. Unfortunately I did not think I would have enough time to order the die to use for Father's Day 2015, so I improvised and used hide contour and slice on Father's Day Card - Man of House in Design Space until I got some images I liked. I cut the tools from silver Slice Metallic Paper except I trimmed the saw blade and layered it on some tan cardstock inked with Cocoa.

In addition to Close To My Heart products, I used some supplies from my stash to create my card:

If the craft projects I share inspire you and you would like to use Close To My Heart products to create them I would be grateful if you placed an order on my OBA.

I hope my brother and you like the card. Thanks for visiting today.
