I wasn't sure where I was going with this card, but it just kind of evolved. I thought about a carpenter's apron, and took Basic Black cardstock to begin.
Cutting my cardstock to 4-1/4" x 11" and scoring in the middle at 5-1/2", I used the Stitched Shapes framelits (ovals) to make "armholes". Then, using the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper, I cut one piece to 4" x 5-1/4". On the back side I traced the "armholes" and then placed my oval framelit right on top, cutting out matching ovals for the apron "arms". I also saved one of the cutouts for my pocket.
And see those adorable tools? The stamp set and framelits made it so easy. I stamped, using Tuxedo Black ink, then colored using a Silver Copic Marker and my new Watercolor Pencils with a Blender Pen. Then I simply cut them out with the framelits and placed the tools in the pocket.
I just finished with a little loop of "vintage" 1/8" Black Taffeta Ribbon and this manly apron is ready to go!
