My son, Mark, is celebrating his first Father's Day this year, and I wanted his card to be very special. I recently went to a cardmaking event hosted by Daralee Peterson, where we learn to do a tool box step-card, which turned out delightful. Since my son is a home-builder by trade, what better card for him than a tool box...something he uses almost everyday of his life!
I had never made a step card before, so for me this was an added challenge to making this card. I used Stampin' Up's Nail It stamps and Build It framelits dies for all the tools and items popping up all around the card's steps and drawers. I just love how this turned out, and I'm sure Mark will as well! Take a peek below:

I tweaked drawer placement and a few tools to please my eye and created the interior design).
