Hey there, crafty friends! It’s Makin’ it Monday, and I’m thrilled to share today’s card featuring one of my absolute favorite stamp sets from the Stampin’ Up! January to April mini catalog – Trusty Tools. 🛠️

Now, I might be a tad biased because both my husband and my son are total gearheads. They’re always tinkering away on something, whether it’s boats, cars, or snowmobiles. So, when I got my hands on this set, I knew it was going to be a winner!

Trusty Tools made simple greeting card

The Trusty Tools bundle comes with an entire toolbox of images to choose from, making it perfect for the gear-heads and remodelers alike. From rulers to paint brushes to drills, this set has it all.

But here’s the cherry on top – for a limited time only, when you purchase the Trusty Tools Bundle, you can earn the Trusty Toolbox Designer Series Paper for FREE during the Sale-a-Bration sale. 🎉 Talk about a win-win!

One super cool thing about the paper is that it coordinates visually with the stamp set, and there are images on the paper that can be die-cut with the dies. No stamping necessary – how cool is that? It’s an easy build for sure!

Now, let’s talk about the card itself. This would be the perfect heartfelt thank-you for any gentleman who’s gone above and beyond for you – whether it’s fixing a leaking pipe, hammering in a nail, or making your door latch work. Trust me, it’ll endear you to him for a very long time. After all, how many times does a guy receive a handmade card?

Staying true to the theme of Makin’ It Monday, I kept the colors simple – just three, and the stamping even easier. We all love easy!

And guess what? The fun doesn’t stop here! Join me tomorrow for Takin’ It Up Tuesday, where I’ll be taking this same card up a notch. Trust me, you won’t want to miss it!
