My mom and dad love playing cards -- Texas Canasta with their freinds. I got them a "cards" themed gift for their anniversary and decided to try making them a card with playing cards. I was inspired by a few of the cards I saw made with playing cards on SCS. The outside greeting is made with the computer and the inside says ...to the king and queen of hearts. I used the Saran Wrap technique with silver ink over the cards and some white to "age" it a little. I spent a lot of time with the BG on the Night of Navy but then when I put the card together, I covered most of it up.
