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.
