Stampin' Up! Nailed It with some nuts and bolts
When I made my Hey Chick card for Totally Techniques baby wipe technique blog hop I was keen not to let the lovely self made ink pad go to waste so I also made this card using the same technique detailed in my Stampin' Up! Blog Hop post. I used the fab set Nailed It which is in the Stampin' Up! UK spring catalogue and is a hit for male cards. I used the Build It dies that coordinate too on the nuts and bolts and ruler using silver foil card to create a modern look. I cut a separate screwdriver in silver foil and also stamped it first on whisper white card and then die cut it again to add a colourful handle which I coloured with Stampin' Up! markers.
An additional bit of texture was created with Stampin' Up! Timeless Textures by stamping and heat embossing the 'grid' stamp across my baby wipe ink pad background which was stamped with Gorgeous Grunge.
If you use the Build It framelits to cut the hexagon nut you can keep the circles from the centre and add a score line to create screw heads.
