I have seen the face card done on many blogs in the past. I LOVE them. I asked my students to to create themselves as a face card. They were asked to use the same 'stylized' face of the card but they could give little changes that represent them such as sports, or hobby interests.
We did drew this project on a template (click here to for a printable template). I found this to be helpful to get the letters backwards for the printing plate and the lines to match up to create a complete card. We printed this project with foam. This way the images are similar on the top as on the bottom. Finally, they colored in some of the lines to give it a little pizzaz.
