After being absent from the blogging world for a few weeks due to illness, I thought I would share a little craft for Valentine's Day. It isn't anything fancy; just something cute to give the grandparents!
First, I started out by buying heart shaped cards and envelopes from Michaels for about $8. This craft also required a stamp pad, letter stamps, a ruler, and a precious baby foot.
I started out by stamping "Be My Valentine" on the front of the card. I used a ruler to keep the letters in a straight line and to make sure that "Valentine" ended up in the largest part of the card.
After letting the front dry, Clay and I proceeded to stamp Aubrey's foot and put it in the inside of the card. Although the pictures show each of us doing it on our own, it is really a two person job; one person is needed to hold the baby and another person to get the foot in the stamp and onto the paper. Also, at four months old, it is basically impossible to keep her fingers uncurled so that is why we chose the foot!
After that, we just added a sweet message and a little flower stamp on the front. And there you have it! A sweet Valentine's Day card to share with the family and a keepsake of that sweet little foot!
