My teenage grandson turned sixteen a couple of weeks ago. If you’ve ever tried making cards for teenage boys you’ll know how hard it can be.
I decided to go a little abstract for this card, and here’s what I ended up with:
I used a variety of different ‘splotchy’ stamp sets (from Kaisercraft, Stampin’ Up!, and others).
The number “16” was made using chipboard pieces from Kaisercraft, and painting with acrylic paint. The cardbase was ‘kraft’ cardstock, so using a vintage gold for the chipboard was the best match I could get.
The main ink colour used is Stampin’ Up! Island Indigo. I’ve also used it for the mat, and kraft for the base card.

p.s. Apologies for disappearing. I had foot surgery less than two weeks ago, and I’m supposed to keep off my foot for 55mins out of every hour!! I’ve had to sneak onto the computer for a few minutes to do this.
Love your card Chryl! I think ‘grunge’ style is a safe bet for a teenage boy – I’m sure he’ll love it!
Sorry Cheryl – slip of the fingers on the keys:(
Great card and love the design and colors.
Ooooh loving those ‘splotchy’ stamps, they’re pretty cool! Great masculine teenage card–sometimes they can be so difficult!

Thanks Ann. Yes, I think Grunge is perfect for teenage boys. And even for men, depending on who it is.
Thanks Verna. I tried to keep to the more ‘masculine’ colours.
Thanks Donna. You can’t go wrong with splotchy type stamps, mostly because they never look wrong!
