Thank you, Man

I needed to make 12 thank you cards for some men at our church who helped us at our special ladies event. I always find it difficult to make cards for men so I thought metal and speed might be good for them!
Materials needed:
Need for Speed stamp set (#122717)
Chalk Talk stamp set (#130634)
Polka Dot Parade patterned paper (#126902) 4 x 5 1/4"
Elegant Eggplant card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
So Saffron card stock
Hung Up Cute Clips (#129389)
Brads (since I needed brads for 12 cards, I used a variety)
Crop-a-dile hole punch
Certainly Celery ribbon (#109050)
Extra large Oval punch (#119859)
Baked Brown Sugar ink

1. Stamp your greeting from Chalk Talk stamp set on So Saffron card stock with Baked Brown Sugar ink. Punch it out with the Extra Large Oval punch.
2. Stamp the 4-wheeler on So Saffron card stock with Baked Brown Sugar ink. Cut it out to be about 2 x 2 3/4." Adhere the greeting on the top left side and the 4-wheeler on the bottom right side of the Polka Dot Parade paper.
3. Adhere a strip of Certainly Celery ribbon about 6" long across the middle of the Polka Dot Parade paper, wrapping the ends around to the back. Leave about 1" in the center of the ribbon without adhesive so that you will be able to slide the clip  on. Choose the clip you want to use and slide it on the ribbon.
4. Punch a hole on each side of the ribbon (left and right sides) with a Crop-a-dile punch. I used the Crop-a-dile because it is often very hard to punch a hole through the ribbon with a regular hole punch. Insert a brad in each hole. Bend the brads at the back.
5. Adhere the Polka Dot Parade paper to the Elegant Eggplant card stock, allowing an edge of about 1/8" to show around the edges of the patterned paper.
6. Adhere the card front to a card base and write your note of thanks in the inside.
