3 of a Kind

Good Morning People.  I'm still buzzing from the amount of comments I had on my last post.  I was over the moon to have so many of you come visit little old me.  I am really enjoying sharing my crafting journey with you.  I hope you have as much pleasure from looking as I get from making my cards.  It was my Daughter's school production last night.  Got to say I was so impressed by the young talent that graced the stage last night.  Was blown away by the ability of so many, but got to admit, was deafened by a few haha.

I'm posting a very quick card today as I'm going to a friends birthday day, yes . Lunch and shopping, then a dinner.  I know now I won't last the day,as I can't drink because of my Meds, but I get too tired by at least I'm always ask to go, which is nice for a change.  Really need to paint my nails lol.

I'm wittering on, so I'll get on with today's card which I call Winning Hand.  I love the quality of Hunkydory cardstock and this card came from one of their kits. The kit is called 'For the Men', which I'm fairly sure is still available. This kit is dedicated to Men and there interests.  There are 10 sets of Toppers, 10 foiled Cardstock and 10 matching Cardstock.  I personally think its a brilliant kit to have as they have covered everything from Football to Fishing and Gardening to Golf.

This is an easel Card, other than the kit there is very little needed.


6 X 6 Card Blank
Gold Mirri Card
3 Playing Cards from the Die Cuts & 2 Sentiments
Matching Cardstock from the Kit
Paper Trimmer
Score Board
Double sided Tape or glue

To make the easel card, take the 6 x 6 Card Blank. Cut away 2 inches from each side of one half of the card Blank.
Score the center section at 3 inches.  This will become the easel
Cover the base of the card with Gold Mirri Card
Cut a 6 x 2 strip of Gold Mirri and Score at the 3 in point, use this to cover the center section 
Cut a 5.5 x 5.5 square from the Card Stock, keeping the playing cards to the right
Arrange the Cards as picture and attach to the easel slightly below the score line (make sure that the easel can move freely before securing permanently)
Finally attach the Sentiments to the card.  I used a circular one as the stopper and the rectangular on the easel base below the hand of cards. 

Well people, that's all for now.  Thank you so much for visiting, please feel free to leave a comment, good or bad, they are all greatly appreciated.  Hope you all have a great day whatever it is you are doing.  I will be back in the creation station playing around.  

Take Care and Keep Smiling (its the best medicine)
