Soccer Themed Birthday Card

Hey Peeps! I had a request for a soccer themed birthday card. This is what I came up with using all Whimsy products.

I created the background using the Grass and Cloud Edger die set. For the sky I created a stencil with the cloud die and airbrushed the clouds with my Copic airbrush system. For the grass I used a super nice green cardstock I had left from an older PaperDoor kit. It is flat and almost looks like velvet but is silky smooth to the touch. I love this cardstock. I thought it's perfect for the grass and gives a bit of a fancy touch to this sporty card.

For the soccer ball I die cut a circle from white cardstock. Then I die cut the honeycomb pattern from black cardstock and also die cut a circle in the same size from the already die cut honeycomb pattern. I layered it on top of the white circle. I saved some of the small honeycomb cut outs and added them to the ball to create the special soccer ball look. The little flag was created with two thin stripes of white and black cardstock; layered on top of each other with the black one protruding on top. The red flag was made using an older banner die which is already retired. But you could use the Bold Banner Dies instead.

The red and yellow card are just cut to size from cardstock and I rounded the corners. The sentiment is die cut from black cardstock with the Birthday, Wishes and Magical die set.

The card base is a standard A2 size white cardstock and an additional layer of this awesome green fancy cardstock. I hope the recipient will like the card.
