Father's Day 2007

No stamping, but loved how this turned out. This is my creation for my dear husband from me and the children. I drew a grid on the back of the white cardstock at 1/2" intervals, then punched with an anywhere 1/8" hole punch at every intersection to resemble pegboard. Brads hold some of the tools (http://www.orientaltrading.com/) in place; for other tools the brad is strictly for decorative purposes and held in place with a glue dot. Sentiments are from 7gypsies Fatherhood stickers, mounted on 7gypsies sticker foam pieces. card size: A6; caramel, black and white cardstock; 1/8" anywhere hole punch, ruler, pencil, 7gypsies foam pieces, 7gyspies stickers, 1-3/8" circle punch, black brads.

What a great card. I always admire cards like this, although my pop would have loved it, he's no longer with us...and my father-in-law hasn't lifted a hammer in the last 2 decades...lol. Fabulous design!
