Critter Trio | Easy Cards Anyone Can Make

Today’s cards are perfect for anyone who wants to make some fun animal cards. All you really need is paper, glue, scissors, and a marker or black pen. Of course if you do have card making supplies you can spruce things up a bit. That’s part of the fun of these cards. You can make them your own.

First up we have this adorable bear. You will need:

  • 1 Card Base
  • 1 Large Circle
  • 1 Medium Circle
  • 2 Small Circles
  • Glue
  • Black marker or pen

This guy is so cute and easy to put together. Just a few circles and he’s practically done. I did use some dimensional adhesive to pup up his little snout, but you could glue it flat or use folded paper to give it dimension.

To make this fun tiger, you will need:

  • 1 Card Base
  • 1 Large Circle
  • 2 Small Circles
  • Scrap Orange paper to make the tufts of fur on his face
  • Thin strips of black paper
  • Glue
  • Black marker or pen
  • Strips of paper for your sentiment (optional)
  • Stamps, stickers, markers, or something to create a fun background (optional)

I love this tiger. I was a little afraid to make his stripes. Sometimes free handing can be a bit intimidating, but I’m learning if I just go for it, more times than not it turns out better than I anticipated.

I love this 3D Lion. While this isn’t a great option for the mail, it’s a perfect card to hand-deliver. To make the lion you need:

  • 1 Card Base
  • 2 Large Circle
  • 2 Ear Shapes
  • Thin strips of black paper
  • Thin strips of yellow and orange paper
  • Glue
  • Black marker or pen
  • Square to mount the lion (optional)
  • Ribbon, stickers, stamps or other embellishments (optional)
  • Versa mark ink (optional).
  • Embossing powder (optional)
  • Heat tool (optional)

Here’s a close up of the lion in all his 3D grander.

I’m sure there are many other animals you can create using basic shapes. I’d love to see what you come up with!
