And for the Big boys

Teen boy cards are often the source of stress for card makers... get grungy and add as much metal as you can! I have run some metal shim thru my cuttlebug using an embossing folder that looks like industrial flooring, and it makes the perfect addition to masculine cards.  You can also use a coke can if you don't have any shim in your stash.  Just use a knife or scissors to cut the top and bottom off your can and give the metal a wash to get rid of the stick fizzy and you are good to go!  just be careful as the edges will be a bit sharp! You can punch or emboss aluminum easily.  The sk8r card has used a rubber stamp image from Rubbadubbadoo, and the woohoo card images are from whimsy doodles (car) and I can't remember where the boy is from... he was a rubber stamp I had a few years ago.

For the Little boys

All of these cards are nice and quick, perfect for the boys friends birthdays.  The baseball player and Noah's ark are coloured with watercolour pencils, the alien with waterbased markers, and the Lion and 'super mouse' are pre coloured images, which make pulling these cards together even easier!
