Birthday Card for a Teenage Boy

I have lots of leaves & plants that work for masculine cards.  They'd be OK for a teenager, but I wanted something fun for this kid who is very intelligent. Pulled out the Hero Arts Number Background stencil which is ON SALE in the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies store.  I made a white card with Spellbinders Labels 22 & inked the front using Versamark over the stencil. After heat embossing with clear embossing powder I sponged on Distress Inks dusty concord, mowed lawn & salty ocean.  An older Hero Arts sentiment was stamped & cut into a banner which I popped up.  I know he will really only be interested in the check inside, but I loved making this simple card.  
Now I can see using that stencil for a lot of different looks.  The a2z store has great Hero Arts products & you can use my discount code, GRETA15, to enjoy 15% off a minimum $25 purchase.  I did use scraps so will enter over at Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  4. I have the numbers background stamp, and I think it makes an excellent male birthday card background. Love what you did with the stencil and the shaped card. I agree...teenagers are mostly interested in the contents of birthday card...I was at that age! lol.
