Since I did not have a birthday card for my gorgeous god daughter, I figured, Olivia and Lexie could make her one using their thumb prints. I think home-made cards are a lot more special anyway, especially when they come from little ones. :) We ended up making two cards, one for my god daughter's little brother as well, as their birthdays are only a month apart.
I actually bought the card stock paper - pastel at the Dollarama for $1.50. It comes in a package of 100 with the following colours: yellow, green, blue, pink and purple. I also bought the ink pads at the Dollarama - I got blue, yellow and purple. I love using those, as it's SO easy to clean your baby or toddlers fingers, hands or feet. You just use a wipe after using it and it's a no mess clean-up.
Making birthday cards does not get any simpler than this. We used Olivia's thumb prints for the big balloons and Lexie's thumb prints for the little balloons. Then I drew a string on each of the balloons and drew some easy birds for a little bit of life to finish up the birthday cards.
