Tool Frame Shaker Card

Good Morning!
Donna Phelan back again!  Today I am sharing a Masculine Shaker card that I have made.  It's fun, it's easy and it's manly!  June is the month we all celebrate the men in our lives.  Mine has built me 2 beautiful homes so I have built him this FUN card!  Seems about right, aye?
I started with this fabulous Tool Frame by Tutti Designs.  Isn't it just fantastic?  Check out all of the little details; saws, hammers, drills, screwdrivers and even lots of little nails.  WOW!  Everything a man would love!
I also paired it with this perfect die set!
These Tools became my 'shaker bits'.
I took 2 pieces of Holographic Foiled Toner Paper and adhered them together.  They sparkle and shine like crazy! 

Then I die cut many 'tools' from them.  This way if they flipped over, they would still all have the foiled look.  I realized that the wrench and pliers would be too big for my Shaker so I have saved them for another project.

I cut my Tool Frame 3 times.  Once from chipboard, brown card stock and then again from my Foil.  I layered them all together making for a nice sturdy frame.  I also added red and brown card stocks for handles. 
Nuts, bolts, nails and even the little 'dots' that came out of the bolts have been used.  I also added lots of glitter.

Frame built, sentiment stamped and a nice shiny silver brad for an accent.

A whole lot of shakin' going on!

Simple inside sentiment.
So FUN!!!
