For this Mothers Day I wanted to send my mom something that celebrates her both as a mom and as a grandma. She lives in California and hasn’t seen the little guy since he was just one month old. I decided to make her a Mothers Day card with an imprint of his foot.
The supplies I used were 4 x 6 patterned cardstock, Tempura non-toxic paint, and a sponge brush
The first step was to paint the little guy’s foot. As he lay there, I put some of the orange paint on the brush and proceeded to paint my little guy’s (cute little) foot. I then took the card and stamped his foot. I made sure each of his toes touched the paper to get a nice footprint.
The final steps were to trace the foot with little guy’s name, the date the footprint was taken, and his current height and weight. I wrote a short Mothers Day message and added an elephant sticker to the other side of the card. All there is left is to drop it in the mail.
