Soccer Ball Birthday Card


Today's card is another male card, but this time for a 6 year old.  The card was a commission and my brief was a birthday card for a six year old soccer mad boy.  He is a big fan of the local Adelaide United team, so I was asked to include their colours.

I decided to make a soccer ball shaped card, and after a bit of googling to see how a soccer ball was constructed this is how it turned out.  I used a hexagon punch to recreate the ball, which is not strictly accurate but it is the only way to flatten a soccer ball for a card.  The word 'six' is popped up on some dimensionals.

I used the Adelaide United colours on the inside - white, red and blue.  Their logo is a group of stars that are in a soccer ball shape, so I added the stars as the best approximation I could do!

Stamps: Curly Cute
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Not Quite Navy
Other: Big Shot, Timeless Type Alphabet Dies, Small Star Punch (retired), Circle Cutter, Hexagon punch (non SU)

Catch you later,
