Product Spotlight: Soccer Themed Birthday Cards for Children
Being a former soccer player for most of my childhood, it was a real kick making these cards. As a child I loved getting soccer gifts, be it a new ball, a jersey, or stickers, they all made me happy. I don't ever recall getting a birthday card with a soccer theme though. So I set out to create some really fun birthday cards for children that play soccer.
I set a few goals, pun intended, for myself when designing these cards. First, every fold of the card needs to be fully designed. Second, the cards need to be able to be personalized. For these cards I want the buyer to be able to add the birthday child's name, age and uniform number to the card design. Third, the cards need to have fun games or activities for the birthday child to do after opening gifts. I have created cards with a coloring page, a word search and a maze.
The first card that I created was a soccer themed word search card. It was initially created for a friend whose son plays soccer. The design is set up so that you can enter the birthday child's name into the design. It will appear on the cover, in the list of words to find in the word search and in the birthday greeting box on the inside right fold. You enter the individual letters of the birthday boys name to have it appear in the word search box for him to find. You enter the child's age and it appears throughout the card on every fold. You also get to enter his uniform number and it will appear on the uniform of the soccer player character. Most kids will be impressed with those three things, but the card also has two games. The first is the word search and the second is an "Explore this Card" game on the back. Once gifts have been opened the birthday boy will come back to this card to play the games.
My friends son liked this card so much that he took it school for show and tell. That made me feel pretty great! Over time I created 6 more soccer themed cards.
Now I have boy cards and girl cards. I have a bunch of new graphics and have changed the layout a little. There is a coloring page card, a maze card and a word search card for each gender. I think these cards are adorable. I hope you like them too!
In the works are two tri-fold cards that will include all the games available in one card. There will be a boys card and a girls card. Look for these in the not to distant future.
