Tool Time

It is indeed a marvelous Memorial Day Monday! It is also time for a new challenge at My Grafico. Our new challenge involves honoring dad for Father's DayThis week our theme centers around tools. If you know of someone who is handy, this is a perfect set that you will use time and time again. Here are the images we were given to use.

Luckily I had a design in mind:
This could be a tag for a gift but I am using it as a card. I just glued the edges of the tag together to insert the sentiment:
Just flip the wrench and pull down!
Here is a close up of the sentiment: Happy Father's Day...Dad
Here is another close up of the top of the tag card.
I could have used more of the tool but decided not to distract from the To Do list.
I love the screw brads on the corners and the cork DP. What do you think?
Our Design Team has created some awesome projects. Just click HERE to view them:)
Materials used:
Card: Recollections from Michael's
Ribbon& DP: Michael's
Brads: From a craft show I attended
Sentiment: Computer Generated

This too was a simple card due to the awesome digi stamps from My Grafico. I could have added so much more to this card but I wanted to show you just how simple a thoughtful card can be. The most difficult part is thinking about the design!
I hope that I have inspired you to create a project for Father's Day. When you are ready to enter your paper craft just click HERE.

    I love this Father's Day card! So creative! That is so cool how you used the wrench to "unlock" the sentiment! Very nice. Until next time. :)

  3. Great project for a handy guy! The cork and brads are the perfect compliment.
