Christmas crafts - card making with footprints

I am a great fan of Pintrest and have hundreds of projects that I need to get going with some of them. As it is almost December I have decided that I will get going with some Christmas crafts.

The first thing I am doing is making Christmas cards using Molly's footprints.

As this is Molly's first Christmas I thought that footprints would be perfect as they are cute and will be a permanent reminder of how small her feet were in years to come.

So I have started to make this. It took seconds to do, although Molly wasn't overly co-operative with the matter so I only got a few footprints this time round.

I used normal poster paints for her feet. This dried in seconds. For the star, baubles and tinsel I used Sharpies permanent markers.

This was such a simple card to make. I will cut round the feet and put that only some green card along with a "Merry Christmas" greeting.

I have also planned to do some "Mistletoes" cards but will need to have more attempts of footprints.
