Default Custom Aaron Rodgers Card & Photo in Milwaukee Brewers Uniform

Slow mail week, so I decided to make my own card.
Check out this custom Aaron Rodgers Milwaukee Brewers card

Card scanned horribly, but in person it's as clear as the pic below. I printed the high-res pic on professional photo stock and cut out the border from a 2008 UD Masterpiece base card. Then I just secured the photo to the border and glued black cardstock to the back. Around 80pt thickness. Used black sharpie marker on all the white edges to give it a smooth 'finished' look. Also working on a Rodgers/Favre Booklet in the same style.



Here is a pic of a 4x6 Photo I mocked up to have professionally printed, with his photoshopped auto in a card-style layout.

Thanks guys, it was fun making it. Passing time until the Lockout Ends

FavresReturn, I'll definitely post the Favre/Rodgers Booklet in this thread once it's done.
I narrowed it down to 2 pics of each guy that I think will work well. Should be good.
