Fancy Up Your Business Cards

silver edged business cards

My sister and I were really excited to get our square business cards in the mail earlier this year, as opposed to the traditional rectangles. We were all, “we’re super chic and stuff…check out these sweet cards!”

Then I was reading a post by Cassie at Hi Sugarplum! and I was like, “Oh no she didn’t….”, but she did. She had the brilliant idea of gilding her business cards (also square – fist pump!) and I simply couldn’t help myself.

She chose gold, which I LOVE, but Erin and I have cool-family colors in our logo so I went with silver.

So taking my queue from this creative vixen, I began! I started with a plain white-edged business card:

Then I took my handy silver sharpie and pressed the cards tightly together (about 10 or so at a time) and started coloring the edges carefully – I didn’t want to get any silver on the front or back of the card.

I was pretty pumped with the results, seeing as it only took me about 45 seconds to do just less than a dozen.

So happy I stopped by to see Cassie’s post and let me assure you, it’s just as easy as she says!

Try it out with any Sharpie color and let me know what you come up with!
