Okay, one thing I wish I would have done before I left for Snap, was to order some business cards that matched my current blog design. I loved my mini MOO Cards, but I had ordered them months ago, when they were a free Klout Perk. Yes, they were free, I only paid $5 for shipping. Nice, right? I ordered my cards without even planning on updating or changing my blog anytime soon, but you know how it is when you’re a DIY-er at heart. You just can’t leave things alone. So one day I decided I wanted to stretch the width of my blog, but that messed with my blog header, which caused me to make a new one, and update my blog button and colors, etc, etc, etc….But I forgot all about my business cards. The cards that I would be passing out at SNAP!
Well it was too late to design and order new ones, so I took my mini MOO cards with me anyway, and just planned on designing and ordering new cards when I got home. Even though I didn’t have matching business cards, or totally rockin’ ones, other ladies at SNAP did! And I am going to show you some that I thought were pretty awesome.
Kami’s cards, from No Biggie, folded and opened up to a sweet little peppermint candy, and beneath her picture it said, “we were ‘mint’ to meet”. How cute is that?
I met Kirsten from the The Crafting Chicks in line while registering for Snap. She is so sweet and kind, and I would have never imagined her a mom of 4 kids! Cause that girl looks good y’all!
I loved Sara’s (from Mom Endeavors) cards, the cute pictures on the front, the info on the back, and the awesome QR code.
Amy from Mod Podge Rocks, had a reader send her a cute illustration of her, and she turned it into the back of one of her cards. So cute! And I loved this cute card from Earth Cookie Creations. The design, the colors, the font. I love everything about it.
My friend Maegan from I love Chesterrific, has the cutest dinosaur design, and all her info on the back. I love how cute it is. And my boy loves dinosaurs too!
Okay, now here is something I thought was so awesome. Laura from Pink Cake Plate, passed out handmade suckers with her cards, and she had a cute scratch and sniff sticker on her card that completely goes with her design! I loved her idea.
I loved Patty’s card design, from My Craft Spotlight. The Keep Calm trend, and the simple black and white design made it a hit with me.
Okay, and Shari from Soren Lorensen Design, should get an award for having the cutest photo on the front of her cards. Look at that little girl, her face, her clothes, the background! It’s just gorgeous, and I loved it so much.
So now that you’ve seen some of the business cards from all the gals that came to Snap are you just dying to make some of your own? I know I am, and there are literally a ton of ideas going through my head. When I finally come up with a design I will come back here and post it for you guys to see, and hopefully you’ll give me some feedback. I am already debating whether or not I should put a QR code on my card, what do you guys think? Should I go all modern on you, or not?
