OK, let's do this this way- the exciting part first and the business part second!

Exciting: I am extending my Engagement Shoot Giveaway until February 20! I realize lots of people get engaged on Valentine's Day and I wanted to include them in the fun. Also, I am extending it to people who want to have me photograph the actual popping of the question. I did this for Laura and Jesus and it was super fun, so I'd love to do it again! If you want to enter, just email me at nicoracle@gmail.com and tell me why I should pick you! Easy as pie :)

Business:  I think I am finally nailing down cards that I REALLY like and am stoked to give out!  I have gone through a few designs but haven't been wildly impressed with any of them.  I finally made cards that are pretty simple and include a mini portfolio, but I wanted to dress them up a little. 

I have always been a lover of paper and have a big box of paper under my bed that I pull out and use for various crafts and I decided to add a jacket to my cards.

The supplies:

I picked a pretty aqua blue (my favorite color) paper and wire to add a little texture and rugged-ness.

I folded the paper so it would cover everything but my biz name and held it together with the wire on one side so the card could be slid out of the jacket (or ripped out if you are a brutal type :).  I wanted the cards to be interactive and different than everyone else's.

The finished product:

My favorite part is that I realized a broken Christmas ornament makes a super cool and unique biz card holder!  Bam!
