Last week (OK, two weeks ago!) I made some business cards and I thought someone might be interested in how I did it. I already had card stock so I didn’t need to buy any supplies and by making smaller cards, I got twice as many as I would with standard 10-per-sheet business cards. Extra points for being budget friendly!
Here’s how I did it:
I made the card layout and saved it as a PDF, then dropped the PDF into Pages (iWork on the Mac) and copy & pasted the images and put them into the layout I wanted. I printed three pages onto heavy card stock.
Using my *old* rotary blade (not one I use for fabric) and ruler, I lined up the cuts. I tried to make sure the columns would all be the same size. My cards were going to be 2.75″ x 1.25″, so I cut 2.75″ from the left side.
Then, I stacked them up *carefully* so they didn’t shift and sliced 1.25″ cards using the ruler and mat to keep them as consistent as possible. I was most successful stacking only three of them. They won’t be perfect, but they are free so I’m OK with “really close”.
