My Business Cards Were Featured!

December 31, 2009

I know it’s been a while since I last blogged, the end of 2009 has been pretty crazy here, but I have managed to fit in one last blog post for the year. I promise to try harder next year!

The other day I found out via a Google Alert that I had been mentioned on in a blog post called Business Cards: Inspirational Designs… That’s right, somebody thought my business cards were inspirational! And worthy enough to put into a collection of great business cards 😀

The idea for my cards came about because Joe and I had been looking through blog posts on amazing business cards just like this one & so I decided that I needed to come up with something awesome. I’m now feeling very pleased with myself! A very good end to the year I think!


Charity shop finds

July 25, 2009

As I’m now making my business cards from old playing cards, I have started collecting any packs that we find in charity shops. This is my collection so far!

Music stand cards

First up are these gorgeous cards with a musical theme.

Coastal trump cards

Next we have some top trump style cards from the RSPB.


My husband had a great find with this huge stack of cards that are some kind of word game and also the gold box of cards which is another set of the beautiful musical cards. This time with a violinist on:

These will all soon become brand new business cards. I have also decided that I am going to have to start saving one of each kind of card that I use, so that I can look back over them when I’m very rich, thanks to all the sales that they bring me!

Business Cards

As I needed to make up some new business cards for Junky Chicken I decided to try & think creatively about what they could look like. This is what I came up with…

As I make everything from recycled materials I obviously wanted something that fit with this for my card. Previously this had just meant printing my cards onto white recycled card stock. This time I have used a slightly different kind of recycled card!

There must be millions of packs of playing cards in the world, and many of them might now be incomplete, so what better way to make use of old packs of them. 🙂

My first opportunity to give out some cards was at Handm@de Winchester and they seemed to go down very well. They got some great comments and loads of people took cards. Hopefully they have now gone out into the world to bring me some sales!

Handm@de Goodie Bags

April 7, 2009


A couple of weeks ago I sent off some business cards and samples to go in goodie bags for the Handm@de craft fairs.


I sent 200 business cards and 10 keyrings to be divided up between the bags for each of the three Handm@de fairs.
