Our Christmas Card

I love making cards have been making them for the past few years and even did all my sisters wedding invitations, that's another story though. So this year we decided we wanted to make a card that included Baby Bobs in it, I didn't want to go down the American route of doing a family Christmas picture, not saying I wouldn't ever go down that route. I found the idea for our cards on Pinterest and we put out own touches like the googly eyes, felt nose. They were really fun to make and after a few practice runs with Baby Bobs foot we had perfected them, well as much as you can when your using a 2month old as your stamp!

All you need is:
  • a Baby
  • a brown non toxic ink
  • googly eyes
  • red felt
  • a brown pen
  • stickers
  • card and envelops

the ink took a few days to dry as we put a good bit of ink on Bobs feet, I think its important not to look for perfection when doing this as you are working with a little babies food and after all they are homemade.
This is the finished product I'm really happy how they turned out. My mum didn't realise that it was meant to be a reindeer I think it pretty obvious but each to there own. I love sending Christmas cards, I think people don't sit down and write cards as much as they used to its so nice to receive a card and know that someone took the time to sit down and wish you a Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas All
