DIY Handyman Card

This card is A5 in size and is made using ribbed effect Kraft card.
 Card for A handyman
This is a silly card I made for my brother who doesn’t really go a bundle on birthdays, but loves his DIY tools. I’ve used a mixture of self adhesive alphabet stickers and my own handwriting.  The check paper is from DCWV.
Picture 192
The tools started off as a free gift with a child’s comic,   the paper shop over the road takes the gifts off any unsold comics and sells them for 30p or 4 for £1.  I love going over for a rummage!  I struggle with “men’s things” but this sort of thing is brilliant for cards, adding to a gift tag or stuck on gift bags and boxes.
