Father’s Day is coming up and while it can be difficult to figure out what colour of tie to get for Dad for Father’s Day, a hand made card is always going to be a hit. This DIY Father’s Day Turtle Card is the perfect way to show Dad that he is TURTLE-LY AWESOME!
This card is made with Craft Foam Sheets and I even have a printable turtle template that makes it easy to avoid a pinterest fail and make your card look amazing. Googly eyes add that final touch of personality to your card.
Black, Pink, Light & Dark Green Craft Foam Sheets
White Poster Board or Cardstock
Black Marker & Pencil
Begin by downloading and printing the TURTLE template.
Cut the template out.
Trace the turtle onto light green craft foam. Cut the turtle out and set aside.
Cut the head of the turtle off and trace onto dark green craft foam. Cut out and set aside.

Glue the head of your turtle on top of the turtle body.
Add your half circles and circles onto the shell of the turtle.
