I love my new business cards, but they have a semi sad sad story attached to them… not to mention an issue [more on that later]. I made them with the intentions of going to Creative Estates. I won a ticket from The Idea Room, got an airline ticket with miles for $7.00, found 3 awesome roomies and then tried to tackle the work schedule. Needless to say, I could not make it happen. But, I did get a fun craft project out of it!
I sewed these business cards out of cereal boxes to attend Bloggy Boot Camp in Austin!
PSA Essentials stamp
adhesive mailing labels
Doilies rip very easily…I only used the lacy part:
Glue lacy part on paint chip:
I used my beloved PSA Stamp purchased through Expressionery:
Here is the front:
And here is the back:
I used these from Office Max:
You get 750 labels for about $15!
Making them on the computer is super easy if you use Microsoft Word…Each package has a template #…I happen to buy Avery template # 5260…All you do is go to Tools, click labels, and find your corresponding number…then the labels automatically pop up on your screen!
I stuck them on the back of my paint chip with a square of scrapbook paper and voila!
So here is the issue, the stamp smudges. No matter how long you wait for the stamp to dry! I have not tried anything yet… I’m thinking about using mod podge on the front of the paint chip? Does anyone have any suggestions to help my little business cards? I’d love to hear…

Great ideas you post here.thanks a lot.
Awesome! I’m always looking for lovely ‘quick and dirty’ crafts for my senior ‘artisans’ group. This beautiful item fits the bill perfectly – I think the doily not only gives it a touch of class but also speaks to the seniors in a huge way ie past fashion, interior design as well as antique or Victorian era ideals. Your little paint chip now delivers a whole trip down memory lane! (Of course, I’ll make sure I spray them with hair spray first – thanks for the heads up on the smudging) Blessings..
