Birthday card for tween!!!

My DS has his friend’s birthday party this Saturday and this gave me chance to make a birthday card for a tween boy. I also got a chance to use PTI’s Make it Monday technique challenges on the card. Here is my card.

I have used cardstock, ink and brads from Stampin’ Up!, pattern apper from Basic Grey and Bo Bunny, Stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink and lace trim from Kaisercraft.

I also used Make It Monday techniques of  sponging using die negatives, distressing, inking the edges all in one 🙂

I love how the card turned out. Gorgeous colors and distressing. Hope the boy likes it. My son loved it and is sure his friend will like it too 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. This is a really awesome card Gayatri! I love earthy tones!!!

    Hey are your ordering from the release today? lol


  2. WOW Gayatri, this is a perfect teen card, love the grunge look!!!

  3. Very cool card!

  4. A perfect teen card. I really like the masculine and grunge look. Great job, Gayatri.

  5. Gayatri, I'm having such a hard time thinking of masculine type cards but yours has finally sparked some ideas for me! I like the way you used the papers..zigzag cuts, frayed edges and the banner..nice touch! But you also added a little bit of lace…subdued color. TFS!

  6. What a wonderful masculine card. The car looks great.

  7. Gayatri……I just absolutely love the colors on this! And I think your son's friend will just love it. Very masculine and perfect for a driving (or soon to be driving) teen.
