Moxie Fab World: Card Play

Had to stop in with ONE more post today to get my entry in for Moxie Fab! Scroll down to see my DeNami Color Challenge and Lawnscaping Challenge posts!

So the challenge here was to incorporate playing cards into the design.  Here is my card...

IMG_3343

I printed the sentiment from my computer on the card base.  Then I made my own playing card!  I cut the card 2 3/4 x 3 3/4" and then rounded the corners.  I use PTI's Fresh Alphabet for the "A" and the Heart Dies for the hearts.  I made my own black frame, tracing a card of the same proportions, just 1" smaller.  I attached the smaller hearts straight to the card and popped the center heart up on foam tape.  I made a black mat and then attached it and the playing card to the card base!  

Stop over to the Moxie Fab blog and see all of the amazing playing card creations!  And you still have time to play along!
