Business Card


For those of you who haven't seen, Amy at Heartfelt Greetings is having a contest on her blog. It is to create business cards for yourself! First of all, let me say that I have REALLY missed Amy's challenges! She used to do a sketch challenge every Sunday that I LOVED! So, when I saw that she had posted a "challenge", I was so excited to participate! Now, when it was for business cards, I had to think about it a lot. This is definitely something I've never done before. . .what was I going to do in such a small space, and make it functional at the same time? Then there was the issue of "what do I advertise"? I'm not on any design teams, and I wouldn't exactly call myself a Freelance Designer as much as those things would be a dream! :) That's when I thought I could use my blog to advertise what kinds of things I make just in case someone might want a card or gift set. Who knows if I'll ever give one of these out, but it was A LOT of fun to create! Really very simple too! Thanks, Amy, for the challenge! If any of you are up for it, give it a try! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Garden Whimsy, Whimsy Jumbo wheel; Ink- Old Olive; Paper- Papertrey Ink white cardstock, DCWV black; Accessories- slit punch, hole punch, Ruby Red and Basic Black markers.

Cute Card! It fits you perfectly with the little lady bug. How do you do the scalloped edge with the slit punch? I haven't had time to play to figure it out.

What a great idea to STAMP your business cards! I agree ... this business card suites YOU! Although with all your talent, it should have some big title under your name!
