My Son's First Father's Day!!!

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: 

Ingredients:  Stampin' Up:  Cardstocks-Real Red, Crumb Cake; Silver Foil. Stamps-Nailed It, Urban District, Hardwood. Dies-Build-It framelits.  Ink-Early Espresso, Archival Black, Soft Suede (distressing). Embossing Folder-Hexagons Dynamic EF.  Step-Fold Technique.  Size: 4-/4" x 5-1/2".  (Thanks Dar for your lovely card design to replicate.  I tweaked drawer placement and a few tools to please my eye and created the interior design).
