Calling cards for Pink Saturday

I have designed some fun personal calling cards. Apparently the Victorian custom of leaving a social calling card is making a comeback. Hand them out at parties, moms' play groups, and on the World Wide Web, people are leaving calling cards in guest books, on bulletin boards, attached to emails, and so on! You are welcome to use the one you like best, and add your name, web address, or email address to them with an image editing program, like Print Shop.
In the Victorian era, everyone was expected to carry a supply of calling cards, which were used for social calls, and to give to others. The more calling cards you received, the greater your prestige.
You simply  click on card to enlarge then right click on image and save to your computer and customize them with your own information and print them out on your color printer using pre-scored business card paper or print on card stock and cut out.

I have business cards made up even though we are retired because that is easier than trying to remember our phone number. They are very pretty.

Beautiful calling cards! I think it would really be nice if these are truly making a come back. We could use some of the manners and graciousness of times gone by. My favorites are the one with the bird and the one with Paris. Thanks for sharing. Happy belated Pink Sat.

These are so pretty! I had my very first (and last) business cards many, many years ago. I came across it just a couple of weeks ago in one of my sewing boxes. I remembered how much fun it was to flash them around. And now you're telling me that I could do it again.
