Growing up in Hawaii, I used to play a Japanese card game called hanafuda. It was the inspiration for my brother's birthday card....
Hanafuda decks consist of 4 card sets of images for each month of the year....For October, it's the deer and maple. I wanted some of the images to have a 3-D effect. I printed two of each image and ran them through my Xyron to ensure they bonded down to the cardstock to them sturdy.
I made the card an easel card with the sentiment,
"It doesn't matter if you win or lose... It's how you play the game!"
Happy Birthday Brandon!!! You are one cool bro!
