Bonkers for Business Cards

I spent a very fruitful few hours today being inspired by business cards on Pinterest. Oh. My. Goodness. You'll be seeing these fruits of my labors over the next few days. Later this week, I'll post about organization and such, and will share some fabulous ideas y'all have for that irksome subject.

But to today's business-card inspired greeting card. Check out the FOUR layers of cardstock here. The only way I can do this is to use white, you know. It's a rule. 

My thank-you card was inspired by THIS PIN. As you can see, it's a pretty literal interpretation. Aside from the layout (which is grand), the color combo on the original struck me as so very pretty I just had to try it.

The simplicity of the "business card" looked sadly blah on a plain card base, hence the layers of mats. Nothing is popped up with craft foam, so the card is nice and flat and easy to mail.

Be sure to check out tomorrow's has colored card stock on it. How SHOCKING!


stamps: Mama Elephant (Freestyle Florals), Gina K (sentiment)

  1. wonderful clean and simple card, really like it!

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Your card is eye-catching and just my style in that it has no craft foam. I also enjoy your sense of humor. I am bracing myself for the shock of colored cardstock.

  3. Love your white layers! The partial image looks so nice in that golden green ink.

  4. The white on white is very nice. Can't wait to hear more about organization!

  5. Love all the layers in white and that the margins on the layers aren't all the same. Looking good!

  6. Such a beautiful card! I finally took your suggestion and looked at business cards on Pinterest. What was I waiting for? They are fabulous and I want every one. I look forward to your post every day, but will be watching especially for your interpretations of the business cards.

  7. I thought you said you've done several de-stashing attempts in the past... how the heck do you still own colored card stock?!? How did that not make the cut before now? Wait. When the heck did you ever get it to begin with???

  8. Simply fabulous. How do you get your matt layers so precise? Do you just eyeball it? Do you use a special tool? A ruler? I'm curious to know because I can never manage very thin borders.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
