I had mini moo, which I love because they are cute and inexpensive.
I had 300 mini moos the first day of Renegade craft fair and ran out by Sunday morning.
I thought I should have a more substantial card since I'm in the stationery business.
So I got these blossom cards from the paper source, pre-cut, pink, and perfect! I used to think that standard sized business cards were lame but I think the irregular sized cards are easier to misplace.
On the front I stamped my logo in pink pigment ink then embossed it with clear powder. This makes it raised and gives it a shiny finish.
Using one of my letter stamp sets, I set up my info to be stamped on the back.
Because of the size of my base I could only stamp one line at a time which is why they are a bit crooked, i.e. "charming."
The fruits of my labor.
My trusty logo rubber stamp.
My three favorite brown ink pads: Colorbox chalk in chestnut roan, Memories dye ink in artprint brown and Versa Magic in jumbo java.
While at the paper source I found these round labels, the same pink as my business cards. I didn't know what I'd use them for but they were too cute not to get. (p.s. they are available in tons of colors!)
2 days later I had a reason to use the labels.
Danni, who was one of the hosts of LA blogger social, asked if Paper Pastries could donate anything for the gift bags. I put together little packs of address labels and made envelopes out of parchment paper:
If you don't have an envelope template, you can just take apart an envelope, lay it flat and trace the shape.
Because the parchment paper was in a roll they curled after they were cut out, so I flattened them in a book overnight.
I used a bone folder to make clean creases.
