Step by Step Easy Penguin Card Design instructions:

As mentioned, we used some prefolded A6 cards in black, purple or dark blue. But you can make your own card and also make these cards in ANY size or shape. If you have “standard” card, you can simply fold it in half to make a greeting card base.

Cutting your penguin’s features

Your penguin card will need the following features:

  • A large oval, with the bottom trimmed off
  • Two white circles with pupils drawn in
  • Pink cheeks
  • A triangle for the beak
  • Little feet (two heart shapes, trimmed down)

Assembling your super simple Penguin Christmas card design

Glue down your white oval. Trim if necessary.

Glue you beak in place, then add the eyes and rosy cheeks.

Finally add your Penguin’s feet.

FINISHED. That took less than 3min to make. If making in bulk, you can get these made even quicker!
