I started by die cutting the base part of the tool, don't know what it is called but that is what i'm going with, from some pink flower pattern paper. Then i cut all the tools from some metallic grey card stock. I cut some black card stock to 6 inches x 6 inches and placed the base tool in the middle and traced just the two ends.

Next i placed the different die tools at my traced ends, moving them around until i had them were i liked them. With washi tape i held two of the dies down, one on each end, then ran it through my die cutting machine. Then removed those and placed the next two dies down, i did this until all of tool dies were cut.

Now my black panel has lots tool shaped holes!!! I adhered this panel to a 6 x 6 white card base, then added the grey tools into there matching cut outs. Were the brad goes, i cut that part in half and fit two of the tools together. This will be hidden by the base tool and i didn;t want a build up of three layers of card stock.

After all the tools were inlaid i added two black brads to the base tool after stamping the sentiments in it. Then i added it the card with foam dots.

Last i stamped the remaining sentiments in versamark and then heat embossed them white. Oh, i almost forgot, for the scissor tool i added a black enamel dot to were a brad would go!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will play along with our Add a Brad challenge!!
