3D Toolbox - Spellblogger postr for Spellbinders

This time my Spellblogger post for Spellbinders is the card I made for my Hubby's birthday.  I always try to make something relevant and fun for his card - usually that involves cars in one guise or other, but as he's been doing a lot of DIY work at the holiday flat we've recently bought, I just couldn't resist using this toolbox die set
I loved this Spellbinders dies set and I knew it would come in handy, so it definitely had to come and live with me.  I hunted out some great digital download papers on Etsy to keep to the DIY theme

For this card I wanted the toolbox to pop out from the card, so I made it with a tame between two of the toolbox die cuts - rather like when you make one of those fab folding box-cards.  It means that it folds flat enough to go in an envelope, then the front of the box lifts away on the hidden hinge.
I made the tool box first, then lots of tools to go in it, which are attached to the various folded card strips between the two tool box pieces. 
 It was sooooo cute!

Large 6x8 card blank
Digital papers printed onto white Bazzill card
Card in Yellow, red, black and, silver for layering, the tool box and the various tools
I added a coil of wire because my OH can't bear to throw a piece of wire away, but never seems to have the 'right' sort when he actually needs some!
To finish I added the die cut Happy Birthday sentiment using some screw head brads - I know they'd come in useful one day!

Here are the Spellbinders die sets used this time
