Business Cards

I attended a great little local event the other day with the goal of 'networking' (which I'm terrible at) and decided a few business cards were necessary. I'm currently working with my lovely friend Chelsea of Arugula Press to have some letter press ones done up; but they wouldn't have been ready in time for this event; so I decided to try a DIY version that I spotted over at Mint.

I found this great laser cut 'ribbon' tape at Michaels; and everything can be made better with a bit of glitter! In the end; the cards that worked out the best were the ones that I dipped the edges in a copper stamp pad rather then the glitter. It ended up being a bit to heavy with all the glue and glitter around the edge!

It was really simple to print them out at home thanks to the Office Max business card sheets.

and...the finished project!

If you're looking for more DIY business card ideas, check out the post that Ellie from Mint did over at Pitch; lots of great ideas! Or, she has a version available in her shop!

Great job, Kimberly! Those are beautiful. Can you send one to me so I can see it in person? The photos are nice but I bet in "person" they are GORGEOUS!
