This past weekend was my Great Nephew's 2nd Birthday. He loves tools and Cars (Lightening McQueen).
When I saw this (click on "this" to see the original card) card on Pinterest, I knew I had to come up with a version of my own, as I knew it would be perfect for him. He is always fixing something around the house and he wants the "real" tools, not the plastic ones. Following his daddy's foot steps. :) Thanks Lori from Organize Chaos for the inspiration...everyone loved it. :) Check out her blog, some really great projects over there. :)
Lori got her inspiration from Ruelysicreativecards Blog, but I was unable to use her .cut files so had to improvise a bit since I use SCAL2. Took quite a bit of work but I was able to trace the screwdriver, wrench and measuring tape from the jpeg and used the tracing feature in SCAL2. I found the hammer here at Cricut Cards. The tool belt and pockets I made out of regular old cutting rectangles and rounding the corners. I used my circle Spellbinders for the half round cuts with my Cuttlebug. :) For the pencil I used a strip of yellow and cropped the end with a rippled heart punch to give it that shaved look. I also used a real pencil to color the tip. Gave it that realistic look. :)
