Happy Birthday - Good For A Guy

I know I got this card layout from Pinterest because I remember when I saw it I thought "HEY! A great masculine birthday card!" I think the original or was done in red, white and blue, but I think the browns, greens and blues I used also make it good for a man.

Supplies used:
~Stampin Up Punch A Bunch
~Stampin Up Small Star Punch
~Cuttlebug Diamond Plate Folder
~Grosgrain Ribbon
~Memento Ink
~Cordinations Cardstock
~Various Cardstock/Patterned Paper
~Cat Eye Chalk Ink
~Translucent Sheets
~Hallmark Studio

I printed the inside sentiment on the Translucent Sheets I got at the bargain store. I was able to get the paper for $1.80 a package and I checked Walmart online and it sells for like $10 a package! *okie's heart flutters at the great bargain she got*. It does show where I taped it since I used my ATG gun but I don't think it takes away from the card, but instead just adds a little interesting border.

To print on the Translucent sheets without any problems I set my printer on "fast", think the setting might be "draft" on some printers and it was ready almost as soon as I had it back to my craft table. I was worried about it smearing but didn't have a problem. I am really gonna enjoy using this stuff and it was a heck of a lot cheaper than the packs of Vellum I have seen!
