Congrats Wrench Tool Card

Saw a similar creation of the Wrench I made for this card so I decided to try and make a congrats card for a guy.

Wrench is made using a 3/8" x 3" strip of paper, Stampin' Up 1 1/4" circle punch, SU word window punch, SU itty bitty flower punch and SU 3/4" circle punch. Punch a 1 1/4" circle and then punch out a portion using the SU word window punch. Punch an SU itty bitty flower and then punch an SU 3/4" circle around the itty bitty flower but not with the flower too centered to give you area to add dimensions to attach.

Inside of card:

buttons: 3 old, 1 on front of card & 2 on inside of card
embossing: Crafts-Too Tools embossing folder
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
metal: aluminum nongalvanized roof flashing - embossed with Tools embossing folder


Basic Grey

Fiskars Road Trip stamp - arrow

Stampin' Up: punches - 3/4" circle, 1 1/4" circle, itty bitty flower, word window

Tim Holtz:
ink: Adirondack Metallic Paint Copper Dabber - used on buttons
paper -  core'dinations cardstock - Spiced Marmalade base, scraps
paper distresser, sander

twine: orange/white
washi tape: measuring tape
