DIY Card Art

April 23, 2012

Make your own art work.  Scan, enlarge, print and frame. This is how this project came aboutA few anniversaries ago my husband handmade a card for me.  He made it out of a deck of playing cards.
The card was a triptych, so cute and clever.  I absolutely loved it.  I wanted to do something with it, but what?  I then remembered an image of a large playing card framed as art. I think this idea came from a Domino Magazine? (I can't recall exactly).  So I scanned, enlarged, printed (I used Kodak Gallery) and framed each playing card.  I used these Ribba IKEA frames. And now they are in Little Miss A.'s playroom. This is an easy, fast, and inexpensive way to fill some walls with something meaningful.
What do you think?
