Oops, I was in such a rush to get this card to its recipient that I didn't check for the quality of the photo.  So my humble apologies for the blurry photo.  But I wanted to show it anyway, as it demonstrates a fantastic background technique I saw on the Stampin Pretty website.  All by using the Curly Label punch!

Using your Curly Label punch, cut out a pile of 'curly labels' and then glue them onto your card base.  I then inked up my Totally Tool set and made a 'tool strip' and then coloured in some tools that I had cut out.  I originally wanted to make a tool pouch on the front but ran out of time and put my tools behind the greeting.  It's amazing what you'll do when you're trying to get things done on time!

But I am really going to miss Kiwi Kiss when this colour retires very soon :(

Here's what I used:

Stamps: Totally Tool & Birthday Wish (retired)
Inks: Basic Grey & Garden Green, Brocade Blue, Yoyo Yellow & Ruby Red (markers)
Papers: Kraft, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze & Going Grey
Other: Curly Label punch & Large Oval punch, eyelets

And seeing as this card is for a male, it has no bling, glitter or ribbon.  Perfect!
