My other great nephew turned 16, he just happens to be the brother of the one that turned 13 that I shared a couple days ago.  I always do a vehicle themed card for their 16th birthdays and in the past I have used trucks well I have this cool car die now so I will probably be using this one too now.

I used some silver metallic paper for the inside of the tires of the car. The number 6 was already on this tag so I just added a rub on #1 to make it 16. Used the strip I cut off the tag so you could read the route 66 sign to stamp my sentiment onto it.

Frantic Stamper - Convertible Roadster die
Recollections - Awesome boy paper
Rubon - #1
Celebrate stamp
Stampin up - Black Jewels
Tim Holtz - Metallic collection - silver for tires
Distress ink - Hickory smoke around edges 

The silver in the tires show up a little better in this picture, I think I was getting the reflection of my red shirt.

I hope you all enjoy a fabulous weekend!! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

What a great card for a 16 year old boy!! Love the idea of the silver for the rims. My grandson is a 'racer' so I always use silver metallic paper that I run through using a diamond plate embossing folder for his cards. He's 22 now and still likes seeing that diamond plate panel on his cards! LOL GREAT card my friend!

Such a fabulous card for a male's 16th birthday. LOVE that yellow car. Wouldn't it be fabulous to drive around in a real car such as this.

Such a great card for your nephew, Connie! Sixteen is such an exciting age - learning to drive - dating - perhaps a first job. If only we could do it all over again! Sending hugs xo Karen

Gosh, Connie, you really know how to create magnificent masculine cards. You're a natural at it.

This card is so cute. I love the yellow car.

Wow! Any guy would love this card! Love the Route 66 paper. We drove a stretch of that last summer, but it definitely was not as awesome as this!
