Masculine Card Ideas with Toolbox Essentials
Hello, crafty friends! Brenda Noelke here from My PaperCut Creations! I’m thrilled to be guest posting on the Spellbinders blog again today! I have three masculine cards to share using The Toolbox Essentials Collection designed by Nancy McCabe! This collection is perfect for those hard-to-create masculine cards!!
NAILED IT CARD
My first card features a couple of dies from the All the Tools Die Set paired with the A Cut Above the Rest Sentiments & Die Set!
I started by die-cutting the hammer from Phonebooth, Onyx and Brushed Silver cardstock using dies from the All the Tools Die Set. I adhered the pieces together with liquid glue and set it aside to work on the background. The sentiment, from the A Cut Above the Rest Stamp & Die Set, was white heat embossed onto the Phonebooth cardstock panel, on a diagonal.
Next, I die-cut the rectangle included in the A Cut Above the Rest Stamp & Die Set several times from Portobello cardstock. I ran them back through my Platinum 6 with the woodgrain die included in the same set and an embossing mat. The woodgrain detail was enhanced by dragging the rectangles directly over brown and gray ink pads. They were adhered under the sentiment, diagonally, trimming the excess from the edges.
The panel was adhered to a white card base. The hammer was popped up with foam tape and silver dimensional drops were added to the corners of each woodgrain rectangle to mimic nails.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP CARD
My second card features the Nailed It Glimmer Hot Foil Plate with a sentiment from the A Cut Above the Rest Stamp Set!
The Nailed It Glimmer Hot Foil Plate was foiled onto black glossy cardstock with Silver Foil, using the Glimmer Hot Foil System. I trimmed the panel down and adhered it to an A2 white card base.
The sentiment, from A Cut Above the Rest, was stamped onto white cardstock with black ink, trimmed into a rectangle, then adhered with foam tape. Easy peasy!
LOVE YOU TO BITS CARD
My final card showcases many of the die-cut tools from the All the Tools Die Set.
I die-cut all the pieces for the tools from Phonebooth, Onyx, Portobello and Brushed Silver cardstock. I added a bit of brown ink to the screwdriver handle and adhered all of the tools together with liquid glue.
The background for this one was embossed onto white cardstock with the Faux Stitched – May 2022 Embossing Folder. It was trimmed slightly and adhered to a panel of Phonebooth cardstock, debossed side up, then added to a white card base. The tools were adhered on an angle and the excess was trimmed from the edges. The sentiment is from the A Cut Above the Rest Stamp Set. It was white heat embossed onto Phonebooth cardstock, then cut out with the die included in the set. It was popped up with foam adhesive and some silver dimensional drops were added to the four corners.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Happy crafting!
Absolutely breathtaking.. Love these cards that you made for Men. My Brother Ryan would love cards like these as he carves wood stumps into animals and builds things out of wood.
