Sunday Scoring Tool Chest Pop Up Card

So in my house I am surrounded by three men – plus a male dog and cat…so I guess I  have to put my mind to masculine cards more often than some, but I have to say it is easy with this new stamp and die set.  There are lots of pop up cards on the net ( or on Pinterest!) but this is my take on one, inspired by the stamp set itself (called Nailed it) and also by a great big red tool chest that lives in the shed!   In terms of dimensions I also wanted one that would fit into a standard 4 x 6 envelope.

I created the tools using two different techniques.  The first one i stamped and die cut and then used an aqua painter to use ink to colour the tools, for the one on my video, I chose to stamp and die cut on coloured cardstock and use paper piecing to create the tool ( I then added some painted highlights).  I think they are both effective and it is all down to personal preference, but interesting to see how different they look.
