Card for a teen...

Today is our grandson's 15th birthday. Teen boys are so hard to make cards for, but this is what I finally decided on:

I made this card with a couple of rectangles with rounded corners and some circle dies.  My background is embossed with a Darice music embossing folder.

The "Make a wish" stamp is a really old one. I'm not even sure anymore who the manufacturer is.

My inside sentiment was computer-generated. I also added a little piece of musical clipart.

This was a simple card--easy to make--but I think it works well for a teen boy.

Do you have a hard time with teen boy cards, too? I'd love to learn something about your "go to card" for teen boy birthdays. I've got 5 grandsons, three of whom are now teens, and it won't be long before the other two are, as well. Believe me, I need all the help and advice I can get when it comes to making cards for them.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Great teen boy card. I have a grandson about to be 13 so I am looking for inspiration for teen cards too. I use a lot of SU's Epic Celebration with the guitar, gym shoes, and headphones. They did not carry it over into the new catalogue.

I struggle with masculine cards period - except maybe the young toddler ones. This one is awesome, isn't it amazing how we can make something with some squares and circles. Great job on this card.

Great card, what a fab diecut and perfect matching embossing folder too! Sorry, can't help with those teen cards, my nephew is turning 15 this year and I've no clue what to make him!
