Center Fold Tool Box Card

Today I'm making another card featuring the "Nailed It" stamp set - new in the Occasions 2017 catalogue.  This time it's a center fold step card make to look like a tool box. 

It was hard for me to visualize a tool box but I drew on the memories of being in my father's work shop seeing him lovingly put away his "toys".  He loved his tools......

My dad is gone now ---this card is dedicated to him.

I used the tutorial with Split coast stampers here to make the center step card, and decorated it to make it look like a tool box.
Aluminum foil was embossed with the Argyle folder (retired) and adhered to the side and bottom panels.
To make the drawers, strips of 2 of 4" of Real Red cardstock were adhered with dimensionals on the outer edges.  The handles are made by cutting in half a small oval silver cardstock punchie/
The tools were stamped on a separate piece of whisper white cardstock and coloured with markers. After cutting them out, they were adhered to the card front as shown in the picture.
The nails the hammer and saw are hanging on were made using 2 sizes of basic black and whisper white  circles made by punching 2 sizes of the hand held punches.

The card folds closed for mailing.
