Now this is a "Man" card!!!

I finally got my friend's husband's birthday card finished and I have to say the "Man" cards are very difficult to design!!!  Here's a photo of the front of the card:

The "pick-up truck"  and "money bags" were images I located through Google Images and I turned it into a "Print and Cut" files with my Funtime software and then cut using my Craft Robo (they are now called Silhouettes) and it does a fantastic job of doing print and cuts due to its "optical eye"!  The sentiment was done in the Funtime software and I used the "Briquet" font and designed a mat to mount it on...all cut using my Craft Robo.  Now, here is a photo of the upper inside of the card:

Saul is on his way to becoming a professional poker player, so I found another image using Google Images of a table full of guys playing "blackjack"...............BUT Saul does not play blackjact, he plays "Texas Hold Em", so I used Photoshop to erase the blackjack items and I used a photo of Saul to add his "head" on the guy in the center with the pink shirt and I also added a BUNCH of chips in front of him!  The other two guys with "real" photos of their heads are pro pokes players Daniel Negreanu (green plaid shirt) and Phil Hellmuth (blue shirt on the right).  My friend says that Saul is absolutely going to love this!!!!  I designed and cut the circle frame using my Funtime software and Craft Robo digital cutter.

I put this card in the mail today and can't wait to hear how Saul liked it..........his birthday is next week!  Thanks for stopping by to see my finished project!!!
