Cool B.O Decoy Madness

Been thinking about doing this for a while now..... Finally decided to pull the trigger. This is a Forum Submission!

Grab a bunch of decoys and start making a few 1/1's (Sketch card, 1/1 auto card) and some sets /5 or /10 or whatever floats your boat. Get as creative as possible, make some Jersey cards if you choose too. Just make sure you sign your B.O name on it.

I will pool together all the "cards" from members on this forum I get and make some small packs...then start shipping them to anyone who participates. These will be FREE (except if you want a pack you must pay shipping).
Dont forget to put your blowout name on the cards so whoever gets them knows who made it!
Here is an example of a Sketch Card from Stripedbass91



I already have a few big HITS from surprise members. It will give a nice laugh to whoever receives them.

I will be away until friday and unable to check the thread so you have a nice bit of time to work on it if you choose too! Dont post any scans of finished product yet. After everyone gets their packs then should post scans so we can see what we got.

Just so people know I plan on giving a few real things away via "redemptions" including one of my full wardrobe pieces, probably an auto'd 8X10, and potentially something else. I may also make a real wardrobe card or two from one of my full wardrobe pieces. Also plan on making two cut auto cards of actual celebrities.

I'd love some instructions on how to make a decent looking relic or cut auto card. Haven't really been able to find good instructions on the web, not that I've dedicated many hours to searching.

Honestly I'm taking a short cut...there are better ways to do it, but I'm printing my card designs onto 4X6 labels, and then cutting them out and sticking them to the decoy. I'll cut out the area for the cut auto for the autos, and a window for a wardrobe card (if I make some...don't know if I want to cut anything off any of my full wardrobe pieces). Not sure how this is going to work with the cut autos yet.

Exacto knife + two decoys + staples/glue/tape = profit!

If you want double sided relic, make a window in both cards. If you want a substrate, make one with window and one without.

Now for my relic where can I get my hands on a human toe ...

Cool

I didn't really have any decoys so I had to improvise. Once I figured out how to do what I wanted to do it went pretty quickly. All ready to ship out now. Hope you guys dig 'em. (Yes, the cards are face down in the pic)
