18 month mindee, never painted with me before( quite new).

Managed to get a few gold handprints and turned them into cards. Usually get a few extras made so they can give to grandparents etc.

They are great :clapping:

I'd like to know how you did the border too.

I always do ones for grandparents too, try to make them different from paret ones.

You definitely can't get away with showing us such lovely hand-print cards without telling us how you did the borders!!!

Well as us card makers say....! Matting and layering!! :laughing:

Cut the white card with hand print to shape, stick onto gold paper (double sided tape), trim round( I use paper trimmer), stick onto red shiny paper and do same. Dead easy. Hardest part was painting her hand as she hasn't painted before! Next steps - painting of all sorts !!

Helps having paper trimmer and all my card making stuff to hand. Will stick little metallic holly leaves on corner and a greeting when I go back to my loft craft room later.

Love my craft! What about you lot? Any other card makers? :blush: :)
