Armed & Dangerous with Eyelet Outlet

Once upon a time when I was married, my husband was a real handyman.  And a very brave (or foolish) one because some of the projects he undertook were a tad risky..like removing a wall without knowing if it was weight-bearing.  This card reminds me of him.

I used a number of brad sets in the “construction” of this card; Toolbox, Tools, Saw, and Screws.  And I also used Silver Foil and Tape Measure Washi Tapes.

The image I used is The Weekend Warrior by Art Impressions.  I stamped it with VersaFine Black Ink and scanned it into my computer so I could import it into my Silhouette Design Screen.  Once there, I erased the tools so they wouldn’t show from behind the brads.  I also traced him and welded his outline to the rectangle on which he sits…you can see how the sides of the rectangle accommodate his hands in motion.  Finally, I traced inside the shirt and filled it with a check pattern.  I print and cut him and then colored him with Copic markers.

The card design, a Step Panel Card, was just so perfect for this theme!  I found a tutorial for it on YouTube.  Here’s a look at it from the side:

And looking down on it.  Also like my ex, he left tools sitting all over the place!

And a final picture of the back of the card with the sentiment from the set.  And another brad and some washi to accent.

    What a perfect card. My dad is a retired carpenter and I enjoy doing cards like this for him. More brads on my wishlist, lol.
