In December, I attempted to send Christmas cards. FAIL.
I figured I’d just do them for New Year’s to wish everyone a happy twenty11. FAIL.
A shirtless photo shoot of my two whipper-snappers would be SO cute for a Valentines Day card! FAIL.
Here is the final image, as a 4×6 photo.
I love this idea for 3 reasons:
1) i didn’t have to prepare the family for a photo shoot
2) you can still tell how different our sizes are by the thumb prints
3) they’re so stinkin’ cute!
Here’s how you can make your own:
Print the free card template [below] on white cardstock. [i printed 2 in case of a major ink disaster. i was working with a 3yo]
Have each person do their prints in the designated area. [thumb = head and pinkies = ears]
Once the ink is dry, draw little bunny eyes and whiskers and things. Kristy’s are so cute! Add the names and ages of all family members too for a personal touch.
Scan or take a picture of the finished thumb prints card (I did a minor edit to it in PhotoShop so the colors were more vivid).
Save the entire image as a jpg and upload it to your favorite photo developing site.
Oh yeah, and then mail them.
Or you can send them by email which I might end up doing if I can’t find the right size envelopes.
(the green border is meant to be smaller than 4×6 so you can have white space at the edges so there’s no need to stretch the image to the edges.)
a freebie for my lovely bloggy buddies!
Is there ‘thumb bunny’ out there who you love? Send them a card this Easter!
