Speaking of Gold Leafing {AKA a quick DIY}

I mentioned in my last post that I have been going crazy with my gold leafing pen.  Here's more proof of that.  As you may know, I am the owner of a paper goods company called Color Hug.  I decided to make and print my own business cards because I came across the perfect paper for it.  Then after seeing images from pinterest of people adding color to the edges of their business cards I decided to give it a go.

Here's my business card before the pen had its way


I pressed the cards together to make a tight edge in order to prevent leaking.


Next, I colored all four edges.


They didn't turn out half bad!






This is a quick and simple project that you can do to add some interest to your business card.  I would imagine any marker would work the same.

Have fun!
