When you split all the cards you will have 52 cards, write 4 A's at the top and and bottom corner (look at the next photo) two in black two in red. Then write 4 2's, 2 in black and two in red.

Do that until #10. Then do that with a J, Q, and K. If you have no idea at what I'm talking about look at the picture to the right.

Draw a clover and spade symbol on half of the black cards and a heart and diamond shape on half if the red cards. Make sure that you don't draw a heart on two #1 cards you have to have the same cards.

Decorate the back however you want to.
