Teen Boy Birthday - Stampin' Up! The Right Triangle

   Teen boy cards can be a bit hard especially if you don't have a stamp set that goes along with some of their interests.  Or you have that stamp set but have used for more than one card for them already!  Sometimes I just go with bright colors and some fun shapes and a bold sentiment.

  For my teen boy birthday card today I used the Global Design Project sketch for inspiration on the layout.  

  The card starts with a Whisper White thick base, then has a narrow strip of Whisper White embossed with the Subtle embossing folder for a little detail for the sketch element.

  I cut various sized triangles with the Stitched Triangle dies in Granny Apple Green, Pumpkin Pie and Bermuda Bay and then stamped some with The Right Triangle stamp set.  I layered them in a cluster for a nice grouping to put the big sentiment onto following along with the sketch.

  I used some retired Black Glimmer paper, adhesive foam sheets and the Playful Alphabet dies to make a nice sparkly happy birthday hashtag.  Hashtags are probably not cool anymore but I've never claimed to be 'in' so I'm staying on brand!

  For the celebrate flag I used Basic Black cardstock and the Many Mates set.  It looks a bit of a hot mess but it's embossed with white shimmer embossing powder so the parts that look funny are the bits of the glitter which don't photograph well.  I promise it looks cooler in person.  I popped the flag on dimensionals and then added a retired Bermuda Bay enamel star along with 2 more in the triangles.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Love this Amanda - perfect for teen boy birthdays, which can be difficult to create for! Some text speak and brightly coloured triangles definitely fit the bill!
