Father’s Day Footprint Card

Father's Day Footprint Card

Looking for a creative Father’s Day card this year? So was I! My husband loves his time in the garage (as you may have read here or there!), so I tried to think of a way to incorporate his love of woodworking into our card this year, and I came up with this fun Father’s Day Footprint Card

Make your own Father's Day footprint card

I used my daughters footprint (as fast as she would let me!) to make a “hammer”, and I used her pinky fingers to make the “nails”. I think the end result is adorable!

Here’s everything I used to make this project:

Cricut Explore Air 2
Copper Cricut Pen
Jackson Paper Package (Close to My Heart)
Grey and brown acrylic paint
Foam Brush
Triangle studs
Glue Pen (optional)

I started with all of the wording on my Cricut Explore Air 2. I cut out the word “Fatherhood” using paper from the Jackson paper pack mentioned above. Then I used the Copper Cricut Pen to write “You nailed it!” onto the white cardstock. My personal writing is atrocious, so the cricut writing feature is a HUGE Godsend for me!

To make the footprints and fingerprints, I simply slathered grey paint all over my daughters foot using a foam brush, and then stood her up on the paper to make the footprint. She’s about 16 months old, so she still has a tiny enough foot :) I then slathered grey paint onto her pinky fingers to make a couple of “nails”.

I added the strip of grey at the top of the nails, and the brown handle by hand. I tried to use her fingers to make little fingerprints in the wooden handle – add some texture. But they didn’t show up all that well. If you squint maybe you can see them?! lol.
