PPPR DT :: Glad I found you, STUD!

This project for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons design team post is a special one for me!
Today, my husband Shawn and I are celebrating our 14th anniversary! Happy Anniversary Shawn! I guess you were right, I am stuck with you! :)

For my card I used the Stud Finder cut file to create this shaped card perfect for any man!
I used the JPEG files that come along with the set for the top sentiment, but I had several issues trying to get my printer to actually print it! I guess I haven't used that printer in so long, that the print heads were clogged or just flat out ruined. I had to change all the ink cartridges and then I still can't get the black to print. I ended up installing Silhouette Studio onto my iMac and then using a flash drive to save and open the file to print it on my other printer. What a pain...but it still turned out great and the print and cut feature is still amazing.
It's a pretty simple card, but I know that he'll like it!
I cut the buttons out of black Core'dinations several times so I could make them pop up off the card. Then I added some glossy accents to finish them off.

Great card! I love the glossy buttons! In the photo, their surface seems nice & smooth - mine always have some streak or spot/bubble - not smooth & glossy like yours. ... Any hints & suggestions?
