Business Card

I feel sorry to Rani because she has to wait so long for her business card. No shame here, I admit that I am so outdated in terms of design software and to be honest, I never design anything for anyone before, except few humble handcarved rubberstamps and stickers. Recalling back few months ago, I have proposed quite a number of design to Rani, but it is truely understandable why most of them failed to meet her preferences. If I was her, I might reject too. I must highlight that Rani is, however, such a lovely, supportive lady as she continues to believe in me eventhough there are plenty of more established, talented graphic designer out there. Thank you so much, Rani! The kind of trust and opportunity you given me are priceless.

So I was so desperately wanting to finish this job, that I had to borrow my hubby's laptop to install Coreldraw. I created my own brush, which is my first time ever, trying to use this software. Time is too little for more experiments and improvise it to perfection but I enjoy the quick process so much, as I learnt a lot in that very short time.

Actually I am very shy to share the look of my first customized business card, but what the heck...everything got to have somewhere to start, right? I cross my finger that it is going to be okay with Rani. She have not seen this card yet.

Double-sided. Printing is done by local printing shop.

Finishing the cards with round corners.

I am so grateful that I bought this corner rounder before, eventhough it is a bit expensive, but I am sure it gonna be useful for years to come.

I dont remember the brand because I already tossed away the box. Nothing written on the body of the cutter, only "made in taiwan" at the back.
