It's truly the BEST thing they can do for their stampin up business.


This is the FIRST thing I like to train my new team members to do
Have yours make these business card holders
It's truly the BEST thing they can do for their business.

It makes it easy to walk up to anyone and give them a compliment. Give on to the bank teller or to the cashier at the grocery store.
Say "thanks for your service"

Real estate offices and flower shops can always us a few hundred of these!

IF YOU CAN'T VIEW THE PHOTO, GO HERE http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LNSBootCamp/


the vanilla cardstock is cut 4 1/2 by 6 1/2
and scored at 2 1/2 and 5 "

Then I used the large oval punch inside to make it easy to get the business card in and out
the razzelberry on the front is cut at 4 X 2 1/4
and run through the big shot
the large oval in punched in artichoke
and the words are from the thank you kindly stamp set

the card is pretty self explanatory
I used night of navy cardstock
artichoke cardstock
and markers to color the stamp.

When deciding how large to cut a piece of cardstock that will be punched on the edge with the scallop punch, punch the scallop first then decide how much you want showing around the edge. as you can see my scallops are all whole..... I like them that way
talk about "being able to control the little things in my life" lol

For all the ideas please join boot camp http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LNSBootCamp/
it's only 8 cents a day

May God bless you and your family,
