Jaded Blossom's April Release Blog Hop

Hey Everyone! 
If you're here from Lee'Ann's Blog you're in the right place, if you're just passing through be sure to start at the beginning because you don't want to miss a thing.  I also have the complete line up at the bottom.

Here is a look at what I made:

First up is a masculine birthday card made using some older die sets from Jaded Blossom along with the NEW Gnome Dies: Tools Add Ons, Nailed It Stamp Set and Nailed It Outline Dies.
I started by creating a white top folding A2 card from white cardstock and doodling around the perimeter with a black Micron pen. I die cut two rectangles using the Rectangle Dies 2 from two different gray cardstocks. I added a bit of doodling and then adhered them to my card front. I built my little handy man using the Gnome Dies & Gnome Dies: Tool Add Ons and popped him up onto my card with foam tape. I stamped my greeting from the Nailed It Stamp set & used the coordinating Nailed It Outline Dies to cut it out. I popped it up onto my card with foam tape and lightly inked around the perimeter of my card base with some black soot distress ink to complete my card. 

Next, I decided to make a fun little treat and gift card holder to go along with my card.

So cute! 
I used the Crate die and cut it from red cardstock. I placed a piece of black cardstock on the inside to cover the crate openings and placed some thin gray strips to act as the drawer pulls. I cut pieces of cardstock to cover the sides and the back of my box. I cut a piece of cardstock 3 1/8" x 6" & did a little scoring to create my lid. I will place all the dimensions of the pieces I cut below. There is also a quick video showing how I did it. I added a little handle to the top and some tools from the Gnome Dies: Tool Add Ons to decorate my little box. To keep it closed, I added a small bit of velcro. 

Inside the box, I added some black paper shred, a gift card and some little chocolate candies that I covered using gray cardstock, the Tool Stencil and Candy Wrap Dies.

I think this is such a cute little set to give to your favorite Handyman!

Cardstock Cuts for the Tool Box:
--2 pieces of red cut using the Crate Die
--Black Piece (for the inside front) cut at 3" x 2 1/8"
-- 4 Gray drawer pulls cut at 2 3/4" x 1/8"
--Red piece for outside back cut at 3" x 2 1/8"
--2 red pieces for the 2 sides each cut at 2 1/8" x 2 5/8"
--Handle from black cut at 3/8" x 3 3/4" scored at 1/2" and 1", flip and score the other side the same.
--1 piece of red for lid cut at 3" x 6" & scored on the 6" side at 2 3/4" & 5"
*note: my above tool box lid actually measures at 3 1/8" x 6".
However 3" or 3 1/8" both work, there will just be less of a gap with the 3 1/8"
