The Art of a DIY Business Card

I finally took the time to design my Creative Soul Spectrum business cards. But of course, I didn't want to make a typical business card, so I got a little creative. I wanted to give my card a personal touch and have it represent what I do. So, I took to my sewing machine. I figured, I sew everything else, why not sew my business card. Here's what I came up with...


First, I designed my cards in Illustrator and made sure to include all the information I wanted to supply. Then I brought the file over to Staples and printed them on a thick card stock.


I brought them home and went through the tedious process of cutting them all out with my trusty Exacto knife.


At this point, the fronts and backs of the cards were all separate. That's when my sewing machine came into play.


I sewed the two sides together - making sure they were both facing the right direction and weren't upside down. And that was it!


Creative Soul Spectrum business cards hot off the press!
