It's no secret.
I love photography.
And while I love my "big camera," it is really nice to have phones and Instagram.
I try to print out most of my Instagram shots and make things with them, like my photo wall.
Anyway... today I'm actually hanging out at Allume... soaking up the goodness! So much fun! While I'm out doing that, I thought I'd share my business cards I made to share here.
Because I can't make 300 DIY cards in one sitting anymore, I staggered the process, so I didn't get a step by step photo guide going.
But I think they're pretty simple if you want to try some of your own.
First I used this tutorial to print my images from my Instagram feed. Then I created my own backs to the cards with my info in Photoshop. In case you wondered, I printed these on heavy cardstock. So each card is 3 layers of cardstock thick.
Then, I decided how big I wanted the actual cards to be. I ended up deciding to cut the backing at 2.75 inches squared. The photos are about 2.5 inches squared, so I liked the border and room to add embellishments.
Then I cut. For DAYS. For real. This was the longest process. Maybe I do it wrong, but it seems to me the cutting board is built backwards. Tangent.
After I got everything cut I grabbed the fronts, backs, and middles and started taping them together using scrapbook tape squares. Everything was secure at that point, and I almost stopped there because they were nice clean squares.
But nope. Can't do that. Gotta add washi tape. Never leave off the washi tape. That's my motto at least.
I ended up making a ton... wanting enough to give out at Allume, but also to have on hand for other things.
I kind of like how they turned out.
Do you prefer "hand made" or other cards? Where are some places you love getting them from?
