Today's challenge at 365 Cards is to make a card that includes a game piece or two. Here is my example:
This card features two vintage replica Alice in Wonderland game cards.
Here are the instructions step by step to make a card similar to this with mini playing cards.
1. Gather three buttons, vintage lace, a colorful journaling card, two mini cards, a piece of patterned paper that measures 4 x 5 1/4 inches, dry and liquid adhesive and a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 white card blank.
2. Adhere the lace to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch patterned paper using liquid adhesive.
3. When dried, adhere to the white card blank (I made my own using Bazzill Card Stock).
4. On the journaling card (Webster's Pages), stamp the sentiment in the lower left corner using brown ink (stamp: Crafty Secrets)
5. Adhere the playing cards, placing one at an angle and the other straight. Adhere the journaling block to the patterned paper.
6. Using liquid adhesive adhere the three buttons to the card in the lower right hand corner (or substitute embellishment of your choice here).
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week!

Could this Christmas Bird be any sweeter? This three inch tall rubber stamp is so cute and bound to bring a smile to anyones face! For these two cards, I printed the Christmas Bird onto Kraft card stock and went from there. I love the craft with the red, cream and brown color scheme for a traditional holiday color look. He is showing his heart, too. Wouldn't he be just perfect for that someone special?
For the second card, I used the same Kraft card stock print. Mounted on greens, blues, creams and browns. He looks equally cute for a winter sentiment card. I can also think of lots of fall ideas for this bird, too!
Hope you enjoy seeing him. I will be back next week with some other items featuring this outstanding stamp by Mary Vogel Lozinak. Check out all of her stamps at the store. Just follow the Christmas Bird link or the store link to the left!
