I had the image already colored and hopefully it won't be too "girly" for him. Like many of you, I have trouble with masculine cards - and he's also at that "tween" age, but what kind of card do you make for a "tween" boy? I'm sure he won't really care about anything except the check inside!
It's hard to see in the picture, but the image/sentiment is raised on pop dots. The cuttlebugged layer is a copper paper, between text weight and cardstock weight and I have no clue where I got it, like a lot of the stamping stuff I have!
