So you all know I'm a fashion intern working 40 hours a week and making absolutely no money right? Well consider us frugal but my friend Maddie and I had the idea of making handmade business cards for when we go on assignments and need to trade contact info. Since interns aren't supplied personalized business cards... we thought we'd take care of that on our own!
Watercolors (Cheap brands will be fine!)
Lightly trace a standard business card onto to the watercolor paper so you know where to cut later. Use the water colors to spread shades of color throughout the page. Be messy! Tip: use more water, the colors will blend more easily. When you are happy with your design, let it dry for a while, then cut along your outlines!
Write your info on the back and from of the cards as desired! I left the back white, but feel free to water color each side of the paper.
