5 Tips For Successful Feng Shui Business Card Design
Although it follows many rules, Feng Shui design is very simple, so creating your own business cards from scratch using these tips shouldn't be too taxing. However there are many business card templates out there that you can use, just leaving you to address the issue of making them "Feng Shui." Let's find out how we do that. One of the most important elements of Feng Shui is flow, meaning that nothing should be blocked. You also should steer clear of full borders around the card as it stops the flow of Chi; although a side panel or something similar is perfectly acceptable. Sharp points in design elements should be avoided for the same reason. In relation to the flow of design, is the use of the space. While Feng Shui practices allow for correctly adjusted space and flow, no area should be empty or hollow - this doesn't mean that the use of white space isn't permitted, rather that it should be incorporated. The idea here is that any positive energy shouldn't be allowed to escape, but that there is no hiding place for "bad Chi" in empty space.
So any design elements of tubes or empty vases, or anything considered hollow and empty should be omitted from a Feng Shui business card. The latest craze of cutouts in business cards, would also be a big no-no in business card Feng Shui. Some small images or elements you could incorporate include: fountains, fish, wealth toads, foo dogs, crystals, or wind chimes. Dragons are a very lucky symbol, and if you present it on the right hand side of the card, you are likely to bring in more business. Zazzle (see references), have some great options for including dragons into their business card templates, including this skinny business card design. Red is a favorite and lucky color in Feng Shui. You can also utilize blue and black in your Feng Shui business card design as they signify wealth. Try using wood, fire, earth, metal and water as background colors and textures. You can even get metal business cards now, to truly incorporate Feng Shui's love of the elements - metal also signifies money. You could choose your background depending on your business element. This is hard to determine in some professions, but as an example a paper business, or furniture maker would have wood as their element, whereas real estate and construction would have earth as their element. The company's name should always be first, and be made large and bold in order to show strength. Your name should always come after the business name on a Feng Shui business card. Respecting order is a key element of Feng Shui design.
Return meat and roast beef marinade to fridge. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Position oven rack in center of oven. Remove roast from marinade. Discard marinade. Place roast in center of a large roasting pan. Surround meat with potatoes and vegetables. Spread top of roast with BBQ sauce. Spray potatoes and veggies generously with cooking spray. Sprinkle green beans and squash with garlic salt, onions with salt and pepper, and carrots with a little sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle potatoes with garlic salt and parsley. Cover pan with foil and bake for 90 minutes. After 90 minutes, increase oven temperature to 400 degrees and remove foil covering. Continue baking to desired doneness. If your meat and veggies aren’t brown enough for you, turn on the broiler unit for a few minutes. This recipe for roast beef turns out moist, juicy, and very flavorful. The meat I cooked yesterday wasn’t fall-apart tender, but it wasn’t tough, either.
The pan juices are very tasty, too, and hubby likes to spoon the juices over slices of roast and over his potatoes. All the veggies, along with the potatoes, each had their own distinct flavor. I especially like to make this on Sundays when I attend church services. I can put the roast in the oven before I head out, and it’s almost ready to serve when I return home. I suppose it’s the typical “Sunday roast.” Add a green salad, a fruit dish, sliced tomatoes, bread, and/or a dessert, if you feel the need. Really, though, this recipe for roast beef and vegetables provides a hearty meal on its own!

I love this recipe habee and I thank you. I almost broke a tooth trying to take a bite out of that steak in your photo, Holle. So realistic and yummy-looking. Next time I will not read one of your food hubs before eating supper. Thanks, Bill. I always enjoy your kind comments. By the way, you're always welcome at my table - any time you're "down South"! We just had this yesterday; well, not your exact recipe, but a chuck roast and veggies and it was to die for. Thanks for the recipe and loved the info you provided apart from the recipe.
