I remember it was 2-3 days back when I was talking to a friend, and he was making this design for his theme on tumblr.

From what he had made, it was lots of things, like his desk and he had a business card sort of thing on it. So, I asked him that was he going to use CSS to recreate it. And to that, he said that he’ll be using it as an image.

Because of what I saw, I got an idea to make something of this sort.

So, I’ll move ahead and show you the code of how to make this nifty Pure CSS Business Card.

Here goes the HTML for it.

<div class="business-card">
    › Your Name ‹
    <span class="contact-title">
      Contact Me
      <li>Say hi at [email protected]</li>
      <li>(+91) 987-654-3210</li>

And here is the simple CSS.

/*-- The Card --*/
@import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Monoton);
@import url(http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Kreon:400,700);

.business-card {
  margin: 0 auto;

  height: 300px;

  box-shadow: 0 0 10px #999;
  overflow: hidden;
  -webkit-border-radius: 10px;
  -moz-border-radius: 10px;
  border-radius: 10px;

.business-card .background-stripes {
  position: relative;
  background: #fff;

.business-card .background-stripes .stripe {

  margin-top: 20px;
  box-shadow: 0 0 2px #ccc, inset 0 0 0px #aaa;
  padding: 5px;

.business-card footer ul {
  list-style: none;
  padding: 0;

.business-card footer ul li {
  text-shadow: 0 1px 0 rgba(255,255,255,0.25), 0 -1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.25);
