This is the first of two of this card I have made, the other is a birthday card, here. The original designer of the svg files meant it for a black, Halloween cat and that was just perfect for my friend who is mama to two black brother kitties!



It was fun to use all kinds of wacky Halloween print cardstock! The head is attached with a little spring so it bobs around like he's just sprung from the box.





And here it is all flattened for its envelope.

Thank you! Well, there's no real assembly, but you do have to "uncrease" it to form it into a square-based thing, it doesn't unflatten on it's own. I am having trouble describing this simple action!

Haha! Black cat magic, in this case! Maybe I will make a gif or video or something next time I have a card.
