Ball Sports

Welcome

This card was made for a young man who loves a particular ball sport, so I took the colours of the team he follows, and some ball images, and created this card for him.


The balls were all found online as one image - and I printed it three time in differing sizes, then trimmed them out, popping up on foam dots (the only large image) of the ball of the code he follows - Rugby League as it is known here.


The idea to use the lined background (using the team colours) came from one of 


I added card stripes of the team's colours on the right of the card, and a simple sentiment stamped in blue ink at the bottom


The inside had a strip of blue and silver washi applied to the left.
