Have fun making your own fingerprint art using this bumper kit containing an indigo inkpad, 25 cards and 5 gift bags, plus lots of extra card making materials to experiment and embellish with: buttons, bows, rubber stamp, colouring pencils, washi tapes and gems!
Fingerprinting is a fantastic way to set your imagination free as you transform a simple 'smudge' into a work of art. Use the double sided sheet for inspiration and have fun exploring your own ideas. Based around your own fingerprint, use this kit to create magical personalised unicorns.
It's a good idea to practice on scrap paper first, then when you've decided on your favourite styles and slogans, make your own cards and gift bags to say happy birthday, thank you, get well, thinking of you, miss you... cards for any occasion you like. You can get creative with your messages too, following the ideas provided or thinking up your own unicorn themed greetings and inspirational messages. Or maybe you could design your own party invitations? Use the stick-on gems to add sparkle. Incorporate buttons, bows and stamped balloons. And add colour with the washi tapes in pretty pastel shades and colouring pencils included.
You can use leftover ink and materials for scrapbooking or to create more cards, gift bags, wrap, tags... whatever you like!

Fingerprint Art: Unicorn Card Making Kit
- Fingerprints show more clearly with less ink: lightly swirl your fingertip over the surface of the ink pad (rather than pressing down) then do a test print on scrap paper to check how it comes it.
- You can do a few prints before re-inking your finger.
- Do all the printing you would like to do and allow the prints to dry thoroughly ( to avoid smudging), then add pen details. If you have a lot of ink on your finger when printing it will take longer to dry to become smudge-resistant.
- When adding pen details, less is best: a few simple lines is usually enough to transform your smudge into something recognisable without obscuring your wonderful fingerprint!
- You can use the ideas provided for inspiration and have fun creating your own. If you fill a sheet of scrap paper with prints you can do lots of experimenting before making your cards and wrap.
- Make sure you push the lid tight back onto the Sharpie pen after use to prevent it drying out.
- Also, store pens horizontally to prevent drying.
- Have fun!!!
