How To Create A Penguin Tunnel Card

We’ve been making another card with our cute Ice Skating Penguins. We will show you a step by step guide on how to create your own. There’s also a quick youtube colouring tutorial on how to shade our penguin digi.

For this card we have used just the lady penguin. This is a tunnel style card – instead of building the layers up on the card base – you build them on the inside – creating a tunnel.

Watch our how to shade the penguin digi in this youtube video;

STEP BY STEP; Guide to assembling the card

Step 1: With your pre-scored 8×8 blank card – measure 1cm either side of the centre score line & then make your own score lines along your marked line.
Step 2: You will now have a valley fold
Step 3: Select the papers/card & nesting dies. We’ve used circle nesting die in 4 gradient sizes.
Step 4: Matt & layer your chosen card stock to the main card – take the second largest circle & place in the center of the card front & die cut out all layers.
Step 5: Cut the different layers of card stock using the nest circles. Make sure each circle is large enough to matt the small layer onto. Remember you building the layers in-wards, instead of out.
Step 6: Use foam pads to stick all inner layers together. I’ve added small ice skates (available from our Free Digi Sheet) around the outer frame along with die cut snowflakes.
Step 7: Shade in your digi stamp – see youtube tutorial for tips.
Step 8: Finish off with adhesive gems. You will have a lovely tunnel style Christmas card.

Here you can see all the build up of layers. I love the colour palette of teals and lilacs.
You can get the mini individual ice skates from the FREEBIES section on the site – see the competition page on how to access.
