So I had an image of how I would like it. I wanted the original logo of the website to be on the left corner-that way I thought it would look more professional- like the name of the company :-)Under it writes my shop's name- see the lemon among? it is for the letter "o". Because it means lemon green :-)) I would like to thank my dear friend Melih for this cutest idea.
In the middle writes our names, and website address. And above writes our motto.

Annem ve benim dükkanımız için bir kartvizit tasarladım. Kartın renk olarak ismimizle uyumlu şekilde limon yeşili renginde olmasını ve font olarak da yine bannerdaki fonttan olmasını özellikle istedim. Bu arada bannerımızı hazırlayan arkadaşım Melih'e buradan tekrar teşekkür ediyorum. Çok içime sinen ve çok sevimli bir banner yaptı benim için. "Limon"daki o harfi yerine limon koymuş olmasına ise diyecek söz bulamıyorum :-)) Daha şirin olamazdı. Tabi ben bunları aynen kartvizitte de kullanmak istedim.
Sol üstte sitenin orijinal logosunu koydum. Sanki böyle daha profesyonel görünüyor-şirket ismi gibi :-)
Ortada annem ve benim isimlerimiz, altta ise dükkan sloganımız (bannerımızda da aynı şekilde yazıyor)
Kartın arkasına ise bazı ürünlerin fotoğraflarını koydum.
Kadıköy'de 100 tanesini 40 TL'ya bastılar. Biraz tuzlu mu oldu bilmiyorum?! :) Araştırılarak daha ucuzu bulunabilir belki. Ama ben sonuçtan çok memnunum. Özellikle ürün fotoğraflarının kalitesinde hiçbir bozulma yok-ki en çok ondan endişe ediyordum.
And this is the back. I picked my favorite items of both of us! :)
Bu da kartın arka yüzü. Annemin ve benim en sevdiğim işlerimizden seçtim. :)
He started his journey to take 2010 photos for a Canon and has taken 1500 portraits so far. You can see his journey in his blog here. By the way, I'll e-mail him to let him know about my blogpost and to ask where he is planning to take shoots through this week!!
Edit: He answered my e-mail superfast and told me he works in Mecidiyeköy and that it would be a pleasure for him to take a shoot if I can be around there on weekdays.
Here are the materials: Cardboard (thicker comes out better), scissors, glue, ruler, pencil, a piece of paper, embellishments
6. Draw a square right on the middle of the cardboard measuring 9*9 cm (means 5 cm inside from all edges)
7. It is the same both for the box and cover after here.
8. Cut until the edge of the square inside- where the end of the scissors is as seen in the picture below)
10. Cut on the line near it as seen in the picture below.
11. Fold on the lines as below.
13. Now fold the right and left following the edges of the square inside as seen below.
16. Paste them as in the previous picture where all of the "ears" are gathered.
Just before I wrote this post I saw a thread in Etsy Forum asking whether anyone does DIY gift boxes and I think I need opinions on this one. I got a cardboard in this color because my Etsy shop is called "Derin Mavi" which means deep blue in English. So I wanted it to be matching. And I thought evil eye beads were suitable for embelishments because they are also blue and something from Turkish culture. Do you think it came out nice to send package to a customer? Or would you be turned off when you saw it? Should I add or change something?
Oh, there was an Etsian who asked for wholesale prices for two of my earrings in June to sell in her own handmade items website that she set up recently and was trying to develope. I have just got a message from her telling they sold both of them and asking whether they were one of a kind or not to place an order for more! First of all of course I am glad they did sell but not because it means an upcoming order for me, because they were both my own designs. I mean, I am not a designer (professionally). I don't have a degree on design at university. But I am designing since I can remember, I love colors, materials, esthetic. This is obviously because of my mother because yes, she IS a professional designer :-) It's the genes obviously :-))
And these are the two earrings she sold on her website: (I liked how she called them there!)
