Super Simple Card

This card is from the September/October issue of Papercrafts magazine.  Super fast to put together.  I went to the local Dollar Tree and bought decks of cards to use for this project.  

It didn't take long to figure out that you can do 10 winning poker hands from each deck of cards and still have a couple of cards left over.  My cards will have 4 straight flushes and 6 full house hands.  I could have done Royal Flush hands but like to mix the red and black cards since I'm using the kraft paper background.

I probably should mail one of these to Okieladybug!  Maybe it would help her out in the next poker tournament!

So cute. I think that a "Full House" would make a cute new baby or wedding card.

TFS,
