i've been wanting todo this but i thought they'd look silly, but wow, yours are AWESOME! maybe i'll try now...
You should definitely try!
Get those cards to a laminating machine... quick! I look at those and the first thing that comes to mind is that you could make friends and family very personalized decks of cards for gifts. You know, like the face cards could be in baseball uniforms for a fella that's crazy about the sport, your crafty friend may need a set where the symbols ( pictures that count out the number?) would be little balls of yarn.... think about it ! I wish I had art skills!
I was just thinking about checking the library today for a laminating machine. Fortunately, the paper is thick, so so far they're standing up to all the shuffling pretty well.
And those ideas are awesome, thanks! I'm thinking of making a transformation deck, and maybe I could make a video-game related one for my boyfriend.
Cool! I love the way you say the drawing & colouring was half hearted, but they look really good, and you did make 52 of them!
Thanks! I thought I should center and measure out everything, but then I just couldn't be bothered. I suppose lopsided eyes and such don't really matter as long as I can play some gin rummy.
