DIY Christmas cards don’t need to be complicated to look gorgeous. But we do love it when they have a bit of a shine (enter gold metallic markers) and a personal touch, especially if they are made by kids (and here’s where the fingerprints come in).
Homemade Christmas cards are fun both for the maker and reciever of the card, in my honest opinion. I do cherish each and every card I receive, but the ones that were made with love are the ones that bring a smile on my face and manage to get saved in my drawer for years and years to come. They are special… They hold memories.
This fingerprint card is perfect to make together with your kids, it can be a suitable project to make with kids as young as toddlers (you make the drawing and they provide the fingerprints) while older kids will be able to complete this one on their own.
Not sure about painting with your fingers? You can use wine corks, cotton swabs, stamps or sponge brushes (or any other painting material you can think of).
