Gardening Tools


Hi, I've made another card for Father's Day. It's celebrated on September 1 here in Australia.

I'm going to link up to a few challenges.
At Cuttlebug Mania, there's an Anything Goes Manly challenge. You need to use a manual die cutting machine like a Big Shot ( I have a Cuttlebug), and a die or embossing folder in your project. In addition to the tools die, I used Swiss Dots embossing folder and the frame is a Lil Inkers impression plate. I distressed it to bring out the woodgrain.

At Allsorts, the challenge is to use your new stuff! I seem to have a regular supply of new toys to play with and my wish list keeps on growing!
I bought the Memory Box Garden Tools die recently and hadn't even opened the packet yet!

My mat pieces are cut from snippets of card so I'm visiting the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. There's always lots of fun and inspiration to be had there!

At Make It Monday, the theme is Anything Goes and to share creativity.

Materials used: Swiss Dots embossing folder; Lil Inkers Frame impression plate; memory Box Garden Tool die; Lifestyle Crafts thin metal sheet; distress ink; brads and sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

  11. Cathy, this is adorable. We share a similar taste in our MB dies I see. I used my bucket and shovel for the beach scene. Like it real well as tools too! Loved the emboss folder you used for this one. A perfect Father's Day card. TFS
