Extreme Elements Tween Card

Stampin Up Canada

As the mother of an almost 12 year old boy, some of the most difficult cards I make are for birthday parties that he attends.

Now, when I say difficult, I don’t mean hard or time consuming, I mean that the cards need to pass the tweenage boy approval test. And that is not always easy to do! 

But I am happy to announce that this card passed on the first try and apparently even "wow"ed the other kids at the party!

To make this card, I used Basic Black, Sahara Sand and Real Red inks and cardstock. I stamped the Extreme Elements stamp set – $35.95, set of 6, #11581, page 81 – randomly on Whisper White cardstock and embellished with brads and a greeting banner created from cardstock and adhered with dimensionals

Inside the card, I used the Look Here Big Shot die to create a holder for the gift card. This is such a great way to present gift cards and always gets alot of attention.
