It is quite difficult to find the business card you are looking for but for using Tags and Notes. They help you to categorize your business cards, and search the card you need by keyword.
Use Tags to categorize your business cards/contacts

Another useful idea is adding the name of the event where you met the person, such as a trade show or conference.

You can search yours cards/contacts by using keywords in the Notes. Add something like “loves tennis” or “Harvard MBA” so it’ll be easier to find them and remember them.
