I have a hard time with teen cards also, so I will be watching for suggestions too. I know there is a guitar on the Indie Art cartridge

Find out what she likes, I had to talk to the mom of my 10 yr. old grandaughter to find out what she is into, I live in florida and they live in nevada, so if you are not there every day you just don't know. The cartridge that comes to mind is make over it's cool and nifty fifties if she is into dancing.

How about a card full of her favorite color.........background, flowers, candles, cupcakes, anything she loves (images), etc., and with LOTS of glitter! Don't all girls love glitter....or NOT! Good luck. Let us see what you ulitimately come up with. I'm sure she'll love that you made it.....that will be card enough!

I have a teenage son who is very hard to make cards for (he doesn't really care anyways) but I make around what he is into. Basketball, video games, etc.

My daughter is not quite a teenager (10 years old) but is not into "girly things" so I make her cards based on her favorite colors...right now she loves zebra print so anything with that is a hit. I did a card of different sizes circles with different colored zebra prints and to date so far that has been her favorite she tells me.

I participate in a weekly card sketch challenge and that is a good way to get some sketches and just make them based around the sketches.

I also need to make a card for a 14-yr-old girl. I just checked out Paper Dolls Teen Scene. You can find You Tube videos on this cart, too. However, you may not like the eyes that come as a layer on this cartridge. One crafter used a Peachy Keen face instead and it worked really well. Here's the link to the video. Paper Dolls Teen Scene Video

On the Cricut Library site you can see some of the cuts on this cartridge.

Hope you find something that works for you.
