I love playing cards.

I am the first to volunteer to play a good game of Rummy, Rook, UNO, Speed, etc.  You name it, I’ll play it!   On my mom’s side of the family, every Thanksgiving and Christmas get-together ends in a game of Rook and on my dad’s side – you better come ready to play UNO!

When I started dating The Mister I was SO happy to find out that he loves a good game of cards.  Many nights we have a card and wine night.  The two  of us grab some wine and sit around for hours playing cards.

When Valentines Day came around this year I wanted to do something special for The Mister with cards, but I wasn’t sure what to do until I realized that I could go online and make him a custom set of cards…. for around $10 (including shipping).  I was SOLD!!!  I used printers studio.  It was a simple/quick process and the cards showed up about a week later in their own plastic case.  I will use this again.  You could do this for SO many occasions and there is no minimum order.

For The Mister I did a simple design with his last name.  It was so easy that I wanted to create a few free card backgrounds for you to download and use as your own!  With the pantone color of the year being Emerald Green, I decided to go that route for my designs!

Here is a look at all of the designs.  These are designed for the Poker Size Cards – 2.5″ x 3.5″ design.  You can download the full sizes below!

Here are a few that are just for fun!  I love all of the random things you say during a normal game of cards!  Use one or all four below on your custom deck of cards!
