well, I had several problems....one, my printer was running out of ink, and i didn't have any business card paper to even print on, and three, I had these cute lotion bar samples that were really too small to package....so I used my scrapbook skills, got out my card stock and pretty papers, my hot glue gun...and ta daaaaa, this creation was born.  Us crafty minds never quit!!  There is a solution to everything and something around your house you can use....lol



sorry, it wouldn't take a good picture, the flash messed up the colors, so I scanned it and it's lop-sided...oh well

Is this your actual biz card, or is it the sample I'm looking at? As a sample, it's cute as all get-out.

This would never fit into my biz card holder thingie, however. I would have to break off the embellishment or toss the card. There goes your effort.

Much as I love all things crafty, you can't really mess too much with a business card. Even the professionally printed ones that decide a folded version is a good idea: out they go. I have a LOT of cards, and they need to be uniform for a reason.

Also, if you're going to use it as a biz card, you have to put your name and phone on there. You never know who will try to contact you and a lack of info can mean a lost opportunity.

well, it's not actually a business card, not the kind you would cary around, this is just a card especially made to put my samples on, with my business name and stuff on it.  I don't think I'm really gonna make a regular business card, since it's just an online shop, that's why there is no phone number or address, it's simply online, kinda like an ebay thing ya know?

I like it, if I were to come across a business card like that, I would certainly check out your site, as I'm doing now for that matter.  I think it's a fun idea
