Have a birthday coming up soon for your favorite teenager or tween? Then you’ll love this adorable birthday card for teenagers – with just the right touch of whimsy!
I often get asked what makes a card right for a guy, girl, teenager, tween – well, you get the idea! Personally, I think it’s all about color and design, not necessarily the images that are used.
That said, the images from the Oh Snap! Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! are perfect for all sorts of handmade birthday cards! They’re fun, whimsical and cover a variety of sentiments that are perfect for many different occasions. (They’re even a bit snarky – in line with a “dad joke”! 😂 )
One of the things I love about this card were the colors I used:
If you prefer green gators, then it would be super easy to switch out the Soft Suede ink to Granny Apply Green. If you want to switch it up a bit, you can find other Color Combinations here.
