I really do struggle with boy/male cards - and they become more difficult when they are teenager cards!!
I have used a Papermania A5 Kraft Stepper card blank (gotta get me some more of these!).
I have used my favourite Basic Grey papers - Archiac and stamped image from The Greeting Farm, which I have coloured in with Pro-markers and Prisma pencils.
The papers have been ripped and distressed using Tim Holtz distress inks - Old paper, Rusty Hinge and Walnut stain.
The brick wall and Happy Birthday sentiment are both Magnolia (stamped using distress ink black soot), the rest of the stamps are Tim Holtz Bitty Grunge (love this set for boys!)
I added just a little bit of black bling and the metal embellies are also Tim Holtz.
The numbers are AC Thickers that were plain chipboard and I have inked them.
Thankfully the recipient of this card loved it!
Thanks for looking
