In my previous article when I share Dawn Lifestyle Exhibition details, I were talking about my handmade business cards. Today I will be sharing the tutorial on How To Make Handmade Business Cards for Creative People. I hope you will like to see how I did it.
When I got an invitation of the lifestyle expo at Convention Centre, My friend suggest me to grab some business cards too as we might connect some new crafters & bloggers there. So this planned suddenly. I thought to try something handmade instead of printed business cards. I design my own handmade business cards then! Would you like to see how I have done it?
How To Make Handmade Business Cards for Creative People
As it was a sudden plan to visit the expo, So I made these at night while I were tired after shopping during day time! This was the only idea in my mind to make these cards in less time. That’s why I will not be having many step by step images of the making. I hope my creative buddies will understand the making while reading the steps below!
You will need to have :
Canson sheet or any other card material.
Markers & pointer.
First I measure & cut some pieces of cards. They were approximately 3 x 4 inches in size.
I prefer cutting some cards with designing scissors.
Then I cover two sides of each card with washi tape.
Now the matter was about writing down the credentials. I don’t have a perfect hand writing but as my big bro approved the way I were writing, So I feel relax!
I put some lines with the pencil to keep my poor handwriting straight on the card. but after writing on the card then I erase the pencil lines.
I add some colored markers writing too. It was a fine addition I guess!
My dear brother helped me when I were working! I saw this above image later in my mobile. He captured it somehow but I am glad he did. Because this is the only image I have about making of these cards.
Wow.. These are many! Almost 30 I guess! A few were having some mistakes so I skip those cards from the collection which were not neatly written.
What do you think friends? are these looking fine? I am glad to see response of those who were holding these in their hands when I gave it to them.
Here I have packed a gift for a friend who was visiting the expo. I gifted her my handmade decoration piece :)
So here is a simple solution for those who want to make their own handmade business cards. I am not much satisfied with these simple cards though. I am planning to make some more handmade cards with a colored base. This white base seems simple! Right?
I will be sharing some more ideas soon! I hope You will like these handmade business cards! Would you like to see my Handmade Wishing Cards? Or my Washi Tape Crafts.
