Tool Box (in a card)

I was thinking of a different masculine card.  I wanted to feature the "Nailed It" stamp set and came up with the idea of a card in a box (aka tool box) - a simplified form.

Like a tool box, this box red, so I made this card in a box out of Real Red card stock. See a post here on making a card in a box.

This, however, is a simplified version of this 3D card.

After scoring the cardstock and making the cuts on the scored seams, the box was decorated before it was formed into the box you see in the picture above.

A piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, embossed with the dots embossing folder and rubbed lightly with a sponge and Crumb Cake ink was added to the back panel.  On the left side is a die cut Real Red ruler sponged lightly to bring out the markings.  On the back side of this panel is a similar sized piece of Whisper White cardstock meant for messages etc.

On the 3 top panels I adhered embossed adhesive silver foil pieces.  Then I adhered, using dimensionals, a hexagonal shaped matted sentiment to the middle panel.

I stamped and colored with markers the various tools, cut them out and adhered them with glue dots to strips of  Window Sheets and then to the box inserts.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Urban District, Nailed It
Inks: Black Memento, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Markers (Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Pacific Point)
Papers: Real Red, Crumb Cake, Adhesive silver foil (non SU)
Accessories Dots embossing folder, Argyle embossing folder (retired), Build it Framelits, dimensionals, Window sheets, glue dots
