Making cards for teenage boys has always been a challenge.  Here is what I came up with this year for my great nephew’s birthday.

There’s a little bit of dimension, but it is really quite mail-able.  And it was fun to make a young man’s card using pretty pastel colors!

Since the card base is brown a piece of white cardstock was added inside for writing a small message.

This is a “No Layers” design… just the card base and ink.

But if no layers are not your thing, its easy enough to make it a “No Layers +1” card.  Yeah.  Couldn’t resist. Smiley.SheDidItAni

The circle has been punched out, and clear acetate has been adhered inside the card behind the die cut balloons.
