my alt summit business cards:

February 6, 2012


I know I just did a business card diy a couple weeks ago but wanted to share my alt cards too! If you missed my cards from last year, you can see them here. Looks like I used the same yellow card stock again this year ;) Well anyway, I totally forgot all about my business cards for Alt this year, so I threw something together the night before. Here is another quick + easy business card diy for you!


Items I used:

1" x 4" Brown Kraft Labels from Planet Label
Curry business cards from Paper-Source
Paper clips + vinyl decals from The Wanderlust
'you are beautiful' custom stamp
black felt ink pad

I designed the label with a wrap around design in mind. I lay out the text in Illustrator but if you don't have that, you can probably use word or photoshop. You can download the templates for whichever size label at the site. So for my design, the info went on the front and the quote was wrapped around to the back.

I did two versions of this card. #1 - I stamped it with a "you are beautiful" stamp.

The 2nd version included a little animal paper clip + a vinyl decal.

They're fun, simple, + easy cards. Anyone can make them!
If you have any questions, just let me know :)

70 hello's:

  1. I absolutely LOVE this idea! It's super easy yet still looks professional and eye catching. I especially love the little animal clips and decals. I think it's a great way to make someone remember you! You could change the clip to be anything that works for your branding and then add any sort of sticker! I think I might give this cute idea a try! :) Thanks much!

  4. It's hard to pick a favourite, but I love the stamped version so much, its simple, classic and you get a little compliment to boost!
    Though that was a very hard decision to make because your decals are a gorgeous too (I have your moustache one on my laptop, it always makes me smile) ;)
