October Afternoon 9 to 5 "business cards"...

Hey everyone, today I'm sharing a post over at the October Afternoon blog.  I'm creating some cute "business cards" using the Shorthand paper from the 9 to 5 collection.  
I cut apart the fun office girl images and used them separately to create some whimsical cards for my mother-in-law.  
Lots of fun elements from the 9 to 5 collection.  You can read more at the OA blog.
My vintage typewriter was put to good use on these stamped Medium Manila Tags.  The fun rotary phone image is also from the 9 to  5 collection.
A fun couple of cards in total office supply style.
If you're visiting from the October Afternoon blog, here's how I created the small coffee stains you see on my cards (check out the corners on the cards below).  I sprayed the Buttermilk Sprinkler onto a craft mat then used a glitter container to stamp the image.  Just tap the container into the puddle of Sprinklers and then stamp on the cards.  If you want a life size coffee stain simply use a real coffee mug.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hope your day is great!http://octoberafternoon.typepad.com/october_afternoon/2013/02/business-cards-with-michelle.html

Cute, fun cards. I used to work in an insurance office, so these cards are right up my alley! Used a vintage typewriter too! Wish I had that old thing now. Corrine Ann
