My husband and I both had birthdays last month, and my daughters made these cute Thumbprint Birthday Cards based on a design they found on Pinterest.
The inspiration for the design was a picture from Cherion Brandon: My Crafty Life, which is a cut out design using stampers. My daughters changed it up and use their own thumbprints to decorate the cards, which is a fantastic way to personalize the cards!
They chose to have the cutout design be the age we were turning, but this same technique would work for any simple design like a heart or flower.
- Cardstock in two colors
- Silhouette Cameo
- Stamp pads in various colors
- Use the Silhouette to cut out the pattern on a piece of colored cardstock about 5 x 12 inches. Fold the cardstock in half so the design is on the front.
- Take a light colored piece of cardstock and cut it to be just a little bit smaller than the front of the card.
- Use colored stamp pads and your fingers to cover the smaller piece of cardstock in a variety of bright colors.
- Glue the colorful design to the inside of the card so that the thumbprints show through the cut out design on the front of the card.
- Use the markers to write your message inside.
On the inside the girls then wrote a list of memorable events on that took place in during the year of our birth. The resulting cards were gorgeous, and a big hit with the entire family!
