Mama Elephant Designer Series: Mini Penguin Holiday Cards

Let’s make some mini shaped cards today! The Mama Elephant Favor Bag Accessory (“FBA”) line of dies are perfect to create these mini shaped cards I have in mind, and today we will be using the FBA Penguin and FBA Santa Elf ones to create these adorable holiday penguin cards.

Assembling these adorable penguins are very easy and straightforward with the FBA Penguin Creative Cuts. Simply cut all the pieces in your preferred card stock colors and puzzle them back together! I like to just use some clear tape behind the pieces to secure them in place before backing it with the card base. I gave each penguin a little blush to their cheeks with my copic markers.

To add the little extra festive flair to these penguins I borrowed the Santa hat from the FBA Santa Elf Creative Cuts and also die cut some presents from Slim Peeking Presents Creative Cuts for each of them to hold. To create the card base, I traced the shape of the penguin on a piece of white card stock that I folded at a 3″ height. This allowed a little portion at the top of their head to remain attached. I cut out the card bases and then adhered my penguins to the front of the card.

The Inside Holiday Messages stamp set was perfect to finish out this set of mini cards. I stamped a different sentiment in each one since I had so many options to choose from. These mini cards are perfect to add that extra cute touch to your presents or even as a cute gift set. I’ll be tucking in each one of these adorable penguins in presents over the holidays!
