A few weeks a go I won 250 business cards from Uprinting, but I had no idea how to use them on our wedding. Hubby said that I should use them for my Etsy Shop instead, I thought it was a wonderful idea! so with a big smile on my face I started thinking on what to do, because I didn't want to use them just for that, so I design the front for Etsy and the back for this little blog!

At first I thought about doing something really simple and clean, but then I thought “What the heck!! this is the chance I have to make whatever I want!!” So I added some of our wedding invitation‘s lace graphic and play until I came up with this:

[ Front and Back together ]
[ Front ]
[ Back ]
[ HowJoyful close up! ]

I am really happy with them and of course the quality of Uprinting! I can't wait to hand them out :)

    Full color cards, or cards that use many colors, are printed on sheetfed presses as well; however, they use the CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) four-color printing process. Screens of each color overprinted on one another create a wide gamut of color. The downside to this printing method is that screened colors if examined closely will reveal tiny dots, whereas spot color cards are printed solid in most cases. Spot colors should be used for simple cards with line art or non-black type that is smaller than 5 points.;
