Create Playing Cards in Photoshop

If there's any way to entertain my 94-year-old mother-in-law, it's with a game of cards.  From the moment I met her decades ago, I was dumbfounded by the enthusiasm and competitiveness with which she attacked any game. This was a woman out to win, who felt little compassion for any she trod over on the way to victory.

Last night we went to visit her at the retirement home where she lives. Now suffering from dementia, one of the best ways to get her attention is to mention a card game. Given the diminished mental capacity, she's a bit of a wonder to watch when she sits down to play. While many things have left her, she still has a firm grasp on the concept of the game. 

Suffice it to say,  a woman this fond of euchre, hearts et al, raised a gang of kids, all of like mind. Since meeting my husband, therefore,  I've  been drawn (pulled) to the card table far more than I would care to,  as the prerequisite of every family gathering is at least half dozen games. When it comes to cards there's never enough.

So, as I started  thinking about a blog for today's Tutorial Tuesday, with  last night's victory (oh, yes, I was a winner) still fresh in my mind,  I thought these Photoshop projects might be fun:
