Birthday Card made with Cards!

I’m sharing this older post, with an update. This card has been pinned to over 10k boards on Pinterest! Not a bad number for my little hobby/business!

Our home has been filled with playing cards since my eldest son was in the fourth grade. He would practice different shuffles and tricks, and leave decks and single cards in just about every room in our home. A few even ended up on a high window ledge in our living room! (I have yet to see that card trick!) His interest and passion for magic did pay off though, as he has been a professional magician and entertainer in the San Francisco area for several years now!

Anyway, in spite of always having playing cards around our home, using them to create my handmade cards had not even crossed my mind. A loyal customer recently requested some humorous birthday cards to share with her bridge playing friends. Well, this is when I realized I could open a fresh deck of cards and put them to good use! This is what I created.

Even if you don’t play bridge, poker, or other card games this card could be fun to present to the birthday ‘shuffler’. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by for a visit! ~ Vickie

        This is an amazing card! I have a good friend who is really into playing cards!!! This would be the perfect card to make for him! May I ask where/ what the Embossing folder is and where I can purchase it??

        1. Thank you Emily. The embossing folder I used for this card is from the Cuttlebug collection. I have had it for a few years, but you may be able to find it online. If you are unable to find this folder, I will be happy to create this card for your friend and you will have it in a couple of days! Let me know! I appreciate you stopping by my blog! Enjoy your day. ~Vickie

        2. Sorry, I do not know the name of the pattern, but you can probably check online for embossing folders. It is a variation of a chevron pattern. They are not making the Cuttlebug folders anymore, but other vendors may have a similar pattern.
