Weston's 2nd Birthday Card...

Hellloooo My Crafty Friends!

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.  :)

I want to say a very special Thank you to Lori of Organized Chaos, Ruth of ruelysicreativecards and Cricut cards for inspiring this wonderful project.  It was the longest card project I have ever done.  (Did I mention I thought my son had lost all the tools files after 4 hours of working on them? UGH!  Luckily he saved them before he closed the program...Whew!)

Pin It!
