Gelli Print Business Cards

Hi all! I hope you enjoyed your weekend! Today I am writing to you from Sweden (or actually not really, because I am scheduling this post ahead of time). We have an anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week.
 
I needed business cards to hand out to people and decided to make my own. I have a whole stack of gelli printed papers at home and this was the perfect project for some of those papers. The cards were cut from the papers, making them all different, which worked great for me since I am not so fond of repeating the same design over and over again.
 
I stamped the cards with various Tim Holtz stamps and sentiments, using Jet Black ink. Even a gelli printed paper which didn't come out right worked great for the cards (the one in the upper left corner).
 
Some more of the cards. I made a lot of cards and it didn't take much time at all. My details were printed and adhered to the back.

They look fun all thrown together in a pile too.

Join us in our anything goes challenge and it might be you who wins a $50 Simon Says Stamp gift voucher, drawn randomly.
