Cosmo Cricket Playing Cards

Hi Everyone
Day 2 of my Cosmo Cricket week. How about bringing out your inner hustler with these playing cards using the digital “Wanted” Collection.
 
I created a template using various elements from the collection and then just printed onto A4 photo paper, cut out – and attached to my $2 shop playing cards. Easy! 

You could easily make a few of these for an evening. Why not do some custom cards for everyone the next time you host a poker/games night?
I also used the digital Snorkel Collection for the background for this set of playing cards I created for Valentines day this year.
The weathered wood graphics were perfect for the look I wanted to create. You can see the complete post and more pictures here..

Lowri 🙂

    love playing cards – but how do you adhere them to last while shuffling over and over? I play cards all of the time and would love to make some to give my kids and friends that I play with

    Hi Beth – I would say these are more novelty than for your hard-core games playesr BUT you could either cut a piece of paper the same size as the card to avoid any "edges" OR you could try covering them in book covering plastic OR you could maybe laminate them? Either way could be hard work – but you could experiment!
    Thanks for leaving a comment!
