It is. Most of the card backs are easy because they are designed like a mirror image up the middle of the car and line up as long as you have them centered. This one worked out ok because there was a straight edge in the pattern. I cut along the edge of the item the King was holding. The lower was two pieces so there is a slight seam between the diamonds on both sides of them. Some have been easier than others.

Thanks Brian, I can't take credit for the idea but I've enjoyed putting my own spin on it.
Thank you all for the comments.
