{Freebie Friday} Bright Stripe Calling Cards

It’s finally Friday! After a week full of headaches (literally & figuratively), I’m glad to finally get a break.

This weekend I’m going to Summer School PDX and I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to go to school! I’ve chosen to take Photography with Lisa Warninger and Packaging 101 by Tokketok & Shim + Sons. Then, Joy of Oh Joy! added a Sunday class, which I signed up for about Blogging and Social Media. I believe there are still a couple seats available, so sign up and we can hang out! It will be a total creativity boot camp!

In preparation for all this excitement, I’ve been busy making business cards and fun little matchbook notebook freebies to give to new friends. I still have lots more to make, so hopefully I’ll find some time to show you what I’m bringing.

I was happy I already designed my cards in one of my moments of free time, so that I could just instantly print them out for this weekend. So, I thought I should make some free designs for you to mix and match for a personal card of your own and save you some time!

The color palette I used came straight from Tuesday’s post of the brightly striped dress & huge shades.

I’ve made 6 fronts and 6 backs for you to choose from and personalize.

  1. Choose a front and back or just a front that you like.
  2. Click them to open the jpg file. Save the file to your computer.
  3. For personalization of the front, you can open the jpg in a photo/picture editing software. If you don’t have one, there are plenty online that can help you add text (see bullets below for a list). You can even open any program in the Microsoft Office suite (PowerPoint, Excel, Word, etc.), place the jpg image, and add text that way.
  4. Print them out on cardstock to be cut out or purchase business card paper (can be found here) to put them on a template for printing.

Note: The Orange backgrounds are just for you to see the white. Click image for true jpg.



Note: Click designs above to open desired jpg files.

Please let me know if you need any help. I ‘m excited to see what you come up with!

This week we’ve:

    What a fantastic How To! This will be my inspiration to play around with making my own cards instead of always forking over a chunk of money to have them done. I love it when creative also = economical!
