How to Make Cricut DIY Penguin Valentine Card

You will be prompted to insert the Red Fine Point Pen to create the saying “Happy Valentine’s Day” on the card.
Once all the pieces have been cut it’s time to start putting your Penguin Card together. Start by gluing each of the pieces on the card and folding the penguin arms on the score lines.
