Father's Day Wood Working Tools Card

Hello my Bloggy Friends, I am trying to get back on track with my blog, life gets so busy and time runs away :)
 Today I have made a Father's Day Card featuring the
card Sketch provided at Mojo Monday for their
current Challenge :) 
I used a wood working tool theme for my Dad.
For the front of this card I followed the basic sketch layout, I tried really hard to keep it simple and masculine.  For the embossing I used the Cuttlebug diamond plate folder.  I took aluminum foil shiny side down, and adhered it to a piece of cardstock.
I then ran it through Cuttlebug.  For the Tape measure,
I used a Cricut cut from Handy Man Lite, cutting all layers of the tape measure at 2".  I used a black gel pen to go over the cuts for the lines. The Sentiment I created on my computer and printed out. 
For the inside, I cut layers to match the front.  Again I used my computer to create the sentiment.  This time I cut the Hand Saw
out with my Cricut Handy Man Lite cart also at 2". 
I added a black brad to represent a nail to hang the saw from as the Cricut cuts the hole there and it looked funny to just leave it.
I am entering this card into these Challenges:
I hope you enjoyed my Card, I hope to be adding lots of new projects in the near future, including getting some done for 
In my store, I have projects I have made for sell and I am always willing to take orders for anything you need made.  Just email me the details and we will get to work on a quote for you.  I also can cut images you may need from my cartridges or my other die cuts.  There is a full list of my cartridges on my blog page marked my Cricut Cartridges at the top of this page, look for tabs under my header.
Please come back soon, I may even get some freebie svg's made for you all this week, check back often because you never know :)

What a great idea to use aluminum foil. I'll have to try it. And the embossing folder you used was perfect for your masculine card. Thanks for sharing the inside, too, at The Perfect Sentiment Challenge.
