You may have come across this website from my new business cards, debuted here:
Inspired by Design*Sponge’s Amy Merrick, who made stamped business cards on manila shopping tags. I wanted something a little more uniform sized and colorful. Here’s how I made mine:
- Cardstock – cut into 3.5″ x 2″ rectangles (paper cutters are wonderful for this)
- Custom Stamper – I used this one from Staples
- Ink Pad
- X-acto Knife

Add your embellishments. I originally planned to stitch across the tops of them with my sewing machine. As I was picking out thread colors, these scraps of paper caught my eye. They were leftover from my sister and brother-in-law’s baby shower decorations. I glued the triangles onto my business cards and then cut off the extra.
At this point, I decided to move my typeface over to a left-justified placement. The genius of these custom stampers is that I could simply slide over the typeface and keep stamping. I made about 200 cards in one night, easily.
And the finished product:
