3-D Challenge

The 3-D Challenge at FCCB got me thinking about my husband's birthday. I've made a card, but now I needed a masculine gift box.  So here is my project:


The cartridges I used were Artiste and Handy Man. I cut the box using Artiste at 5 1/2" out of black for the box, and a brushed silver for the cover. I used the Cuttlebug diamond plate embossing folder on the silver, because what man doesn't like diamond plate?  I used the drill in Handy Man cut at 2 1/2" and used pop dots to raise it off the cover.  My husband LOVES tools, so I used the colors to resemble his Makita drill!

This is going to be reused for Father's Day!

I'm also entering this at the Bitten by the Bug2 Man Up challenge.

EDITED: This is also being added to the Moxie Fab World Gift Container challenge!

Thanks for looking.
