something for the man in your life

Last Sunday was Father's Day in New Zealand and this is what I made for my father in law. He was a builder so it was really appropriate. I silver embossed the tools (from Totally Tools stamp set) and then using a Versamark pen to colour the inside of the stamped image and embossed in silver to make them look like metal. The paper that they are wrapped in is the lovely Newsprint DSP that has just been released in the new Stampin' Up! Ideas Book & Catalogue.
To get the textured background I just scored the card at 1cm intervals. The original idea of tools wrapped to a bouquet was by a fellow Stampin' Up! demo Tania Cordie from Queensland.
Thanks for visiting my blog and have a great weekend!
