Card and magnet I made today for my brother, Nick's Birthday

This card was made using the new Cricut Lite Handy Man Cartridge. It is a half-fold size card, 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches. The toolbox was cut at 5" and all of the tools at 2 1/2". Hope you like it.
Cardstock used: Base card by Recollections (from Michael's) and the toolbox was cut from The Paper Studio Pearlized Cardstock (from Hobby Lobby) and all of the tools were also cut from a combination of both cardstocks.
I had a left over power drill, so I decided to layer it up several times to make it stiff and put a magnet on the back. My brother is a mechanic and lives out of his toolbox, so I thought this card was perfect for him.

When I cut out images, I always make at least 2 or 3 of everything, that way I always have extras when I want to quick throw a card together.
