Personal Branding - DIY Business Cards

Nothing like a blog conference to light a fire under your tail! 
My business cards were in need of re-branding so the IFB Conference became my self-imposed deadline to get on it! I wanted something that would not only reflect IHOD but also deliver a mini party and reason to smile:)

I was so excited when Tiny Prints was willing to collaborate on my scheme. I was able to upload my own design through their custom business card options. The quality of paper turned out superb. Its a textured thick card stock with clean cutting.


I used watercolors and markers to create the colored circles on the front, added tape on the back, and then filled the mini envelopes with stickers and confetti. 


Business Cards - Tiny Prints
Neon Hearts - Paper & Present
Cellophane Envelopes - In the Clear
Confetti - made from tissue paper

I have a whole pinterest board dedicated to package and brand ideas. Have you seen any favorites lately? I love seeing others unique ideas:)
Happy Thursday! Love, Anna

P.S. I have been thinking about adding disqus in the comments section so its easier to respond to you all. Thoughts? Is it easier for you to comment in disqus or are you indifferent?

  3. so chic and fun! i have disqus and i love it! responding is a cinch and i like that you can add your own css. the only problem is that it gets little bugs sometimes, and certain people can't comment.

  5. i really wish i had your creative mind. im always in awe of what you come up with. seriously. Im indifferent about discus, because if im being honest i rarely ever go back to a blog once ive commented so assume most others dont? but i could be wrong on that.

  7. Very adorable. :) I want to make a little DIY clear packet to hold my cards in my purse. Umm...I don't even know what disqus is! Guess I should look that up...BUT, I do come back every once in a while to see if there were replies to comments I've made of other people's blogs, if that helps. :)
