A Box of Cogs

It's another one of those pop up box cards for Father's Day (you may be detecting a theme here!); this one is for my step dad, who is a mechanical fitter to trade, so I went for an industrial look for his card.
 I made the pop up box with my Mum's Tattered Lace dies, these take the hard work out and give you the mats and layers as well, very handy.
I used Papermania, Mr Smith's Workshop papers to do the matting, choosing papers with a distressed metal look, the cute spanner charm is from the same range.  The sentiment was stamped with a Papermania stamp in brown ink on more coordinating patterned paper.
All the cogs inside the box were cut with Spellbinders dies, using various finishes of metallic card.
