I made this card for a swap at Art for the Creative Mind. The theme was Royal Cameo, and we were to use a TP (toilet paper) mold.
Sometimes I don’t feel like taking a serious approach to this stuff.
This is one of those times.
In case you have never played poker, the playing cards comprise a royal flush. This takes care of the Royal part of the requirement.
I used a tp mold to make the cameo. To do so, I bought large cameo embellishment at Michaels. I made a mold from it using Rangers Mold -n- Pour.
Mold -n-Pour is an easy product to use and it can make some great molds. You get two containers of goo. You mix equal amounts together and then squash it over top of the button or other item that you want to mold. Once mixed together, the product sets quickly and you use it as you would use any mold.It is flexible, so you can remove your molded item easily. In addition to toilet paper molds, I have made molds using Polymer Clay from this product. Amazon has it here: Ranger Melt Art Mold-n-Pour, 1.5-Ounce each, 2-Pack
Back to the card. I attached some rhinestone beads around the outside of the TP mold, and I happened to have some little embellishments in the shape of heart, diamond, club and spade. This worked well.
The first piece of text reads, “Don’t tell me, show me”, which I figure is a good message for a poker theme. The second text reads, “Greater than the sum of its parts” — which is surely true of a royal flush. LOL
Its a weird card, but I like it.
