I saw this card on split coast ages ago and new that I wanted to make one like it. After I took the photo I fiddled with the coins a little and now they look a bit better, not so straight, but I didnt have it in me to take another photo, download, resize etc. I used the Tart and Tangy stamp set for this card. This set is awesome, so versatile. I have so many cards on my to do list that utilises this set. Anyhow, I used my computer to generate the "Jackpot" and "Happy Birthday" and punched them out the the round tab punch. I colored the cherry stamp in with real red and garden green markers, then punched with the 1 1/4" square punch, then punched the gray bg with the 1 3/8" square punch. I used the 1 3/8 circle punch to do the coins. Ans lastly , I made the pull down lever with scrap paper. I remember Mum & her friends going on Pokie Weekends away before Victoria had pokie machines. I think I will save this card for one of their birthdays, I am sure they would get a kick out of it :)

Love the card, Leonie. I can remember playing the occasional poker machines with the levers. They were more fun then just pressing buttons.

WOW, this is what poker machines were all about, the handle. I can remember them too. Just been up to Vic/NSW border for a wedding and it felt right to play the pokies at the RSL club. I love this card and I have a friend who has just had a hip op who loves going on pokie trips so I just might have to make her one. Love your blog, saved to my favourites now. Marls
