I am heading to NYC tomorrow at the lovely hour of 5am. Gah! In preparation to network, I wanted to be sure I had my business cards on me. Oh yes, I forgot. I don’t OWN any business cards! Never fear. I am a crafty and resourceful girl. Surely if I can design my blog, party invites, gift tags, cards, etc., I can design my own business cards!
I googled images of circle business cards because I was certain they must exist and that’s the shape I wanted. Low and behold, I came across these gorgeous cards from etsy seller socialcircle.com. If I didn’t need my cards tonight, I would have ordered some from her. They are exactly what I had in mind! Fueled with inspiration, I set out to make my cards!
Granted you almost need a magnifying glass to read the thing, but it’s the sacrifice I’ll pay for the cute factor. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a 2″ circle punch and only a 1.5″ so had to squnch (past tense of squish) the lettering. I used linen card stock resume’ paper (and to save myself some major computer time) simply glued my front and back pieces together. You cannot tell they are glued at all and it makes for a nice thick little card.
One side of my card dons my blog logo and the other, my name and pertinent info. I used an old mint tin (gifted to me by Kathy) to act as my cute card holder.
I couldn’t resist decorating the inside and outside of my tin! I used my blog banner and wrapped the tagline…
…around the entire tin.
So now if an opportunity arises to share my info I am prepared!
