Homemade Canasta CardsOn his blog, Pressing on Toward the Goal, Aaron writes about a deck of custom Canasta playing cards he created and includes detailed photographs of the cards:

This summer I exercised my creative powers and I made a deck of cards as a gift for someone in my family. The above image is the cover I made for the box that the cards fit in, and in case you don't know, Canasta means "basket" and Caliente means "hot". The images that follow are the templates that I used to print the cards (I printed them as 4x6 photos, then fixed a basket-weave contact paper to the backs of the photos and cut out the individual cards).

Nice job, Aaron - very creative! Check out the rest of his site for more examples of his beautiful photography.
