I’m off to my very first Snap Conference this week and I can’t week. I went to five BlogHers in a row (not counting the smaller regional events) – this is my first bloggy conference in four years. After a less-than-impressed reaction to BlogHer 2010, I gave up on conferences, to be honest. That tune changed quickly once I saw all the great chatter coming out of Alt Summit. And then Quilt Con. And then Snap. So I decided to change my tune and I’m glad I did.
A big part of crafty conferences is having a crafty business card. Holding out as long as I could waiting for a good idea, I finally came up with mine Easter weekend (of course). I decided on making a stamped business card with a stamp carved by Jenny Barnett Rohrs (of Craft Test Dummies fame) and designed by Jason Gibner. The card is paired with a bit of snail mail love inside. I made two mini envelopes using Paper Source’s #1 baby envelope template paired with some favorite Paper Source wrapping paper (slate pine branch) of mine. I cut card stock down to business card-size notes to match with the envelopes, added two poppy 1.25″ round circle labels and put the whole thing together in an A6 cellophane bag.
I love how they turned out. Hopefully folks will tuck a love note into a lunch or wallet once they return home from Snap! If you see me there, ask for one!
