Gelli Print Business Cards

Recently I bought a gelli printing plate.  It allows you to create layered prints similar to ones that you would be able to create using gelatin.  Because you do have to pull a lot of prints before getting a good one, I found that I wound up with a lot of extra prints.  The light prints that didn't make the cut as art, make for great business cards.  I used a business card template on Pages on my iMac, and threw the prints through my printer.  I have found that spraying them with a fixative (matte or glossy depending on your preference) keeps the ink from smearing around too much.
