Stampin’ Up! My (now) 11-year-old’s birthday card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog hop theme is “birthday”.

I knew right away that I was going to use my son’s 11-year-old birthday card for the challenge.
We have a tradition in our house where I decorate the house in streamers and balloons the night before my kids’ birthdays, so when they wake up, the house is all decorated.

This year I picked out the colors I wanted to decorate in and then made the card around it.
We also have a tradition where I tape the birthday number on the wall.

Here’s the card I made for my son. He turned 11 which can be a tricky age as they’re not little kids anymore, but not quite teens, so I went with a clean, simple, bright card.

The card starts off with Pacific Point cardstock which I embossed using the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.

Next I cut strips of Granny Apple Green, Call Me Clover, Pacific Point, Blueberry Bushel, and Night of Navy cardstock.

I stamped the different birthday sentiments from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set on the different colors, sprinkled them with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
