    Sunny – feminine and sweet. I like the yellow with white silhouette. Lacy in a subtle way… and botanical prints are my favorite, (of course).

    Love the cards! I would never guess that pink and yellow would go so well up against each other. But it totally works.

    Where did you order them from?

    I recently ordered and received one of the card files from Lovely Design and it is wonderful. They are expensive, but when you consider it is hand made you understand the price. Plus, it truly is an item you will use the rest of your life.

    Your cards are great. And I just gasped when I saw your card file, but then realized I probably learned about it from your blog. Anyway, mine arrived last week and for anyone who is wondering, it is AMAZING!!

    Hi! Longtime reader, lazy commenter … are you going to sell business cards in your (darling) shop? Please say yes! I need some fresh ones, and those are my favourite yet!

    • Making it Lovely
      January 28, 2010 at 1:33 pm

      No, no plans to sell business cards. When I was doing web & graphic design as Smart & Lovely, I did do business card designs, but I’m not able to fit in the extra work these days.

    Your card, as well as your site, are both so Fresh and Lovely … appropriate for someone who is Making It Lovely!

    Software used to design the cards?

    I love the font used for Making It Lovely, willing to share what it is?

    Love your ideas.

    I had my cards printed locally, but I’ve used 48 Hour Print with good results.

  • Piper

    Ooh, the cards are just gorgeous…completely fits in with my current obsession with anything yellow! The color combo you use is so fresh looking. Love it!

    And thanks for answering the question about the card file – it’s too cool :)
