Altered Playing Cards - Imaginarium Designs

Hi there everyone, back again as Guest Designer for Imaginarium Designs chipboards, with another project.
This time I altered some very over-sized playing cards and once I had decorated them, I placed them on normal C6 folded card.

I love altering items and also love vintage images to use on my cards and projects.

Here I have created 4 cards, altering some playing cards, and adding some Imaginarium Designs chipboards on them. I then applied them onto C6 cards.

Firstly, I applied some gesso to the front face of the playing cards.
The embossed with some embossing paste and stencils, stamped and adhered some washi tape.

I then altered and embossed some of the Imaginarium Designs chipboards frames and other chipboards listed below.
Here is the list of all the chipboards I used to add to my altered cards.

IDFR0004 - Swirly Frame

IDN0002 - Numbers 

Lou's Heart shapes - IDDL0015

Balloons IDT0010

Edward Relief IDT0032


Bird Cage IDT0019

Mirrored Bracket on Frame IDFR0005

Until next time, Thanks for looking :) 

I will be back later this month with another project to share
 Cheers Adriana Bolzon XXX

Such a clever idea, to alter the cards. Your vintage vibe always looks wonderful and I especially like the little winged bird. Great use of the Imaginarium chippies.

These cards are so gorgeous Adriana! What a wonderful idea to use the playing cards as the base .. love that idea and it lookd amazing!! The textures and colours are fabulous on all of them but, I think the one with the bird and birdcage is my fave. Beautiful work!!! Hope you're all set for Christmas.
