Penguin card

Made this little cutie up before we left home - all my stamping supplies were packed, but I had enough still handy to piece this penguin together. He's based on a free vector graphic that I found online, and I've made a simple template available for your personal use, if you'd like to make one as well - Merry Christmas! Make sure you send me a link if you make one, so I can see it too!


Edited to add: several people have asked how to make the hat - it's actually the top of a toddler soc. Cut the toe end off to create a tube, then tie the cut end with a piece of ribbon or twine. We always seem to have odd socks at our house, so I had plenty to choose from, but the dollar store is a great place to find socks too.





Thanks for stopping by!

  23. Hello, aww this is so cute. Can I please ask, how do you make the penguin stand up? I'm not quite sure how to make it, is there a tutorial?

  24. Hi, I just recently found your penguin, and I'd love to make him. Unfortunately, it seems that the template no longer exists. Would it be possible for you to repost it, or e-mail it?

  25. Undeniably imagine that that you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to consider of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst people think about issues that they just do
    not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as outlined out the
    whole thing without having side effect , folks can take a signal.
    Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
