A man card...and a winner!!

Yay for Monday mornings! Okay, not really.

"Such a cute card!"

And without keeping you waiting any longer, today I have a super cool man card to share with you. :) A while back I received an order with some (newer to me) Sizzix/Tim Holtz Alterations embossing folders. The one I used on my card today is called Riveted Metal. I knew as soon as I opened it, exactly what I wanted to do with it!
And yes...if you're asking, this is tinfoil! And it gave me the exact look I had pictured in my head. In order to emboss it, I cut a piece of super thin cardstock at the size I needed and then wrapped the foil around it with the adhesive on the back side. Then just ran it through my Cuttlebug. Super easy and super cool, right?!
I looked everywhere online for an SVG tool box file, and the majority of the files were all 3-D ones. (hint, hint) I finally found this one in the Lettering Delights Tools Cut It set. I cut it out in red and black cardstock, to give the handle a different color. The tools are from the Silhouette Library and cut with my cameo.
