This is a great masculine card as you see it here but wait and see just how interactive it is!!! I made a wall cabinet that opens up. I cut the pegboard in half for the front. The handles of the cabinet are made from the pegboard hooks die and I just snipped off the cross pieces. My husband showed me a woodworking catalog that actually had a cabinet like this so I just went with it and mounted it on a gray brick wall! Below is a picture with the cabinet open. But there is still more to see!!!

I added a gift card holder pocket which I made with silver card stock. I embossed it to look like a shiny chrome tool box.
Here is the picture with the card set up and displayed. It's an easel card and perfect for Dad!!!! The card measures 4.25x5.5 inches and the front is creased at the halfway point and the front panel attaches to the lower half of the front so that it can stand up as an easel.  I used the wood grain paper so that it looked like a work bench top. I hope this inspires you to make something wonderful with the new stamps and dies!!!
