Pinterest-a-thon: call me

Lucky you. Starting the week with me! Something that I've had on the Pinterest list for quite some time is a personalized business/calling card. For the purpose of this post, I'll call it a business card since I'm not listing my phone number so you technically can't call me. I'd just screen you anyway.

I've held back from creating these cards for the simple reason that there's too many choices on Pinterest and it's hard to pick just one. So like making decisions when planning a wedding, I started identifying components of the cards that I like and went from there. These two use washi tape - both display the colorful tape in different ways.


These next two business cards are thick (check out the colorful edging) and I like both the round and square edges.


For my business cards, I designed a simple layout and grabbed materials I already had on hand, including washi tape from friends and leftover wedding invitation cardstock.


After cutting out the cards, I placed washi tape across the bottom and used a round edge punch on all four corners.


I glued each card on dark blue cardstock and AGAIN had a hard time making a decision -- round edge or square edge with the blue cardstock. What do you think?

  1. Love these! My husband was just telling me I needed business cards, but short of going to a blog conference (why are they all in Atlanta anyway?) I don't know who I would give them to. Washi tape is new to me, thanks for the inspiration.
