Morning everyone! So, y’all know that I went to Alt Summit last week, and was once again blown away by the talent, creativity, intelligence and all-around style of the ladies (and gents!) in attendance. Well, when it comes to personal branding and biz cards, you better be ready to bring it, because these Alt Summit-ers are not messing around. Last year I did a roundup of my favorite cards from the conference, and this year the ones I collected are on a whole new level, so I couldn’t resist showing them off. Confetti, neon edging, washi tape and tiny envelopes were all fair game…and I’d love to know which one’s your fave! This afternoon, I’ll be sharing the DIY details on how I did that gilded edging on my own cards, but for now, keep reading for more lovely detail shots and a few of the bloggers behind them! 

Stephanie’s card is an instant party in a teensy glassine envelope.

Laura is as adorable as her crafty cards, complete with teal thread to “tie up loose ends.” I’m keeping mine on my desk in case of emergency!

Remember Michelle and the glittery holiday table she shared with us in December? Not surprisingly, her cards are just as sparkly with gold foil galore. So gorgeous.

I must say that Jessie’s cards scored the most points for creativity. To accompany her shaker-shaped cards for her Style & Pepper blog, she passed out tiny pepper shakers full of candy confetti. Adorable, right?

    All of these cards are awesome! Love all of the little details that make them memorable. The pepper shaker tops the whole thing! Super creative.
    Have a wonderful day Camille!

    Oh, what inspiration! I have to make it to Alt Summit next year – the cards alone make me sad I missed it.

    Great ideas! I’m trying to think of an extra creative to share my business cards during Texas Style Council this year. It’s great to see all the cute things other bloggers have come up with!

    So much creativity! The photo cards with rounded corners (to the right of Michelle Egmont and A Piece of Toast) in the first image really intrigue me. Camille, could you tell us whose cards they are?

    Ooooohhhhhh. So many goodies to choose from! First off, your cards looks fantastic! Very polished and I’m always a fan of gold! The confetti in a shaker is pretty darn cute, but I’m also a big fan of a tiny glossine envelope! Emily Thomson’s layered simplicity catches my eye too. Well done everyone!

      Agreed, I couldn’t believe that Emily’s cards were actually printed with a script-y font…it looked JUST like hand lettering!

      Wow! Just strolling through and had to say a huge thank you! I’m so glad you thought my cards were so eye-catching! And thank you, Camille, for featuring them.

    Camille…..what a pleasant surprise to see my card featured :). It means so much that someone thought my card was worthy of a photo since I designed and printed myself for the first time frantically before leaving for Alt. I think I took away the most priceless information from your panel..I am sorry we did not get to meet in person……..maybe there will be another opportunity!
