Welcome to week forty-one of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop!

Our colour this week is Poppy Parade, a lovely bright red that certainly packs a punch!

As there’s only just over a week left of Sale-a-bration, I’m sharing a birthday card I made in November for my youngest son who is halfway through his electrical apprenticeship. He loves his tools so the Sale-a-bration Trusty Toolbox DSP was simply perfect for him!

Apart from being a great DSP for masculine cards, what I particularly love about the Trusty Toolbox DSP is that the tool sheets have been designed to be die cut out using the Trusty Tools dies. This makes card making a breeze!

My simple silver tool box and handle were die cut from silver foil, mounted onto the card front using Dimensionals and then it was simply a matter of die cutting the tools from the DSP and arranging them into the tool box.

The tape measure is also a strip of Trusty Toolbox DSP. I love that there are both inches and centimetres on this particular design.

The “Happy birthday” sentiment is from the Hello Kiwi stamp set. I love the modern masculine font on this stamp set.

Die cut offcuts from the DSP that weren’t used on the card front decorate the inside of my card.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan. I can’t wait to see what Kate has made this week!
