Came home and Granpa made a workbench for Joey - I just loved how it turned out!! What do you think?!?
So I had to make a card to go with this very fun workbench and had the perfect stamp set from All That Scraps - it's called Handyman Jack - and that would definitely describe Joey's Grandpa Tom.
Handy Man Jack's clothes are all paper piece. How do you paper piece?? Stamp the image on different colored cardstock and/or designer paper then carefully cut everything out - just like when we played paper dolls!
The picture frame is chipboard from the Close To My Heart Dimensional Elements. Using a glue stick cover the chipboard generously with glue - stick onto the back of the chipboard - rub the front of the chipboard with a bone folder so the paper and chipboard get a good bond. Trim the excess designer paper away from the chipboard then use a Close To My Heart Finishing File to get into all the nooks and crannies. I cut a small piece of Close To My Heart Page Protector to fit in the fram and printed a small version of the photo to mount behind the page protector. The frame is then popped up with Close To My Heart Foam Squares!
This whole birthday project was so much fun! And our sweet little Joey really enjoyed everything - including the card!
