"That's the back of one of my business cards. I recycle cartons from cereal, beer, tea... whatever cardboard I can find to print my cards on! Save the planet one tree at a time!"

I do the same! Have sold these in my Etsy shop as well :o)

I also like that by using the rubber stamp in that manner, the card looks like a vintage movie ticket stub, or a secret invitation to an exclusive event. Really cool :)

I make my business cards from old greeting cards, trying to capture an interesting part of the card.

How did you print on the cards? Was it a rubber stamp? If so, what kind of ink did you use?

Gasp... cereal boxes. I love that!

How about flyers that are left over from shows? As a performing artist, there are always a few of those around. Maybe I'll give that a try.
