With our little bloggers trip to Amsterdam planned for early next month, we thought it would be a good opportunity for a bit of self-promotion, so we decided to order ourselves some business cards that we could give out to people we meet to get them to visit the blog. Hopefully it will help us attract a few more extra visitors and generate a bit of word-of-month advertising. We wanted to keep the design as simple as possible, a bit like what we’ve done with the layout of the site, so that the content sort of speaks for itself.
To add a bit of extra prettiness we decided to paint the edges of the cards in gold so thought we’d share a really simple guide on how to achieve the effect yourselves.
- Extra thick business cards
- Plate for the paint
- Sponge brush
- With your one hand hold a stack of the business cards tightly so that all the edges are lined up.
- Paint each edge of the stack, making sure to cover each card evenly.
- Leave the cards to dry.
