Handmade Business Cards

As a participant of Discovering Y.O.U art marketing course I was encourage to try to make my own business card. I was a bit pessimistic first, but making these was so much fun!


It all started with the stamp I had ordered from Vistaprint.




The stamped text box is nothing artistic but the it hit me. I am going to paint and draw the image on the other side. I took an old sheet of blank business cards and started painting. As I also make textiles, especially knits, I wanted to have some of them in the card too. I took few balls of handdyed yarns and made some samples of them. What do you think about the result?




My art journal has got a couple of new pages. These are inspired by interior decoration and gardening magazines.

  1. You are so creative! It is just amazing what you make. It's awesome. I wish I could see them for real, because I don't think I can see everything here on my screen.

  6. I think your idea of incorporating some of your yarns into your business cards is a great idea. when I made our business cards I used a photo of the view from our house so that people would know they had come to the right place.
    PS after seeing a link to your blog I have just made my first background page using your instructions, it was great fun to do.
