Business Card Holder

Problem: I needed somewhere for my business cards, but I also needed a sample of my work to show to potential customers. Solution: This card holder will hold around 35 cards, and is a beautiful way to show what Stampin' Up! has to offer! For specific dimensions and a full-size template, just send me an email! I will try my best to get a template made for you all.
Stamp Sets: For All You Do
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Ink:Certainly Celery, Soft Suede
Accessories: 1/2" Polka Dot Soft Suede Grosgrain Ribbon, Corner Rounder Punch

TECHNIQUE: KISSING STAMPS No silly, you don't pucker up! You let one stamp kiss the next. No, you don't need your stamps to "get a room" either. Here's what you do. Click on the photo for a closer view of the butterfly. To create this texure, I inked the Polka dot Background from For All you Do in Soft suede, then I inked the butterfly from For All You Do stamp set in Certainly Celery. Before stamping the butterfly on the whisper white cardstock, I KISSED the butterfly to the polka dot stamp. Basically I stamped the butterfly onto the polka-dot stamp before I stamped it onto my cardstock. This allows for a transfer of ink. Then all I had to do was stamp the butterfly on the Whisper White cardstock, and I have a 2 tone butterfly.
