*Creating Business Cards*

Amy over at Heartfelt Greetings has a contest running right now to create your own business cards. I had a lot of fun creating the following six designs...

Stamped with some of my new Lizzie Anne Designs stamps and coloured with Prismacolor Professional Quality coloured pencils, odourless paint thinner and a blending stump.

The image is one of the flourish stamps from the Rhonna Farrer set I have, stamped with Lime Colorbox Chalk Ink. I then added some hot pink Primas and some bling.

No stamping on this one... probably doesn't qualify for the contest. I cut the white card slightly smaller and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the D'vine Swirl embossing folder. I then sponged on a little Wild Wasabi ink and layered it onto a piece of Purely Pomegranate.

Again I cut the white card a little smaller. I stamped this flower from Baroque Motifs in Purely Pomegranate. I then took a piece of acetate cut to the size of a business card (which, by the way, is 2" by 3.5") and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the D'vine Swirl embossing folders. I adhered the acetate on top of my business card with clear glue.

Once again, a white card stamped using the flower from Baroque Motifs and Purely Pomegranate ink. When it was dry, I covered the entire front of the card with Versamark ink and embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.


And last, but not least.... another white card stamped using images from Little Pieces in Barely Banana, Almost Amethyst and Certainly Celery. Once it was dry, I sent it through my Cuttlebug with the Bloom Dots embossing folder.

I had a lot of fun creating these and might try to make a few more before the contest if over!
