Penguin Square Cards

Well, I still have not started on my own Christmas cards, but I did manage to finish some that my sister asked me to make this weekend.  She needed five simple cards for the 5 men that live in the group home where one of our uncles lives.  Hopefully, I will get a chance to work on my own cards later this week. :)

For her cards, I decided to make square cards that looked like a penguin face.  I used the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge to cut the base of the card.  I then cut a white heart from the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge and trimmed it to fit how I wanted the face to fit on the front.  I cut another smaller orange heart for the beak and added two google eyes.  I cut a basic square from George and Basic Shapes out of white cardstock for the inside so she could add her sentiments.

I am entering these into the following challenge:
