So, I saw Emma's a couple days ago over at My Creative Time, for a NON Cricut card and I knew just where I needed the start! It's amazing how much usable stuff there is in kids toy packaging! This playing card die cut was from a LaLaLoopsy magician doll that my daughter got for Christmas. It was just spot glued on the inside of the box. I couldn't throw it out because it seemed perfect for a card! I didn't alter the cards at all.
I started with a white frame and then a red mat. I cut the mat a little smaller than the white frame and then I border punched the side with an EK Success border punch and then I inked the edge in black. The vertical border paper I used was from the DCWV Travel Stack. The sentiment is a stamped Studio 112 sentiment that I mounted. The little hearts, diamonds, spades, and clovers were left over from the border punch so I added them as well.
I didn't add an inside sentiment because I thought this could be a good wedding or Valentine's Day card but, I did make the inside match the front, with the border punch. Although rarely done, not one Cricut cut used on this one!!!
