Masculine Birthday Card

My Boss' birthday is this week and I wanted to make him a masculine card. I think this one fits the bill! 

I saw the foil done on Jackie Topa's site Addicted to Stamping.  Just glue aluminum foil to a piece of card stock and run it through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  Makes it look like one of those tool boxes guys have mounted in the back of their trucks!  I added some tools from the Totally Tool Stamp Set.  The little folder was made with the Bigz Top Note Die using Pear Pizazz CS which I also ran through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and then sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip Ink.  The Happy Birthday is from Bring On The Cake 2 of 2 Stamp Set.  I used Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets and ran a piece of Chocolate Chip Ribbon through and also along the edges of the Crumb Cake CS that the Happy Birthday was stamped on.  That was mounted onto a piece of Chocolate Chip CS that I punched the bottom with the Scallop Border Punch.  I think he'll like it??
