Cat's Meow!

I have made one more Slide N Glide card!  As I said in a previous post, I was inspired by the PopnRock cards that I saw on Pinterest!   Below you can see that I started out with a different look for my cats but they looked too scary for me!  So I changed out the eyes with googley eyes!  They looked a little more friendly to me!

I mounted the cats on a base that is made from the small oval punch from SU that I cut in half.  The picture below shows that I can still fold this card up and mail it.  It is a little bulky and will probably cost more but you can mail it!  I will add more detail to the front but I wanted to show you how it looks for now.

This picture gives you a better view of the mechanism that is used to make the cats move. 

The back  of the card!

I did a video of the way to assemble the mechanism that made the cats in the back ground move!  This is the same technique I used to make the sail boat move in a previous post back in August.  I was going to share a template for the flap I used for the Cat's Meow but my scanner is acting up!  I will try and share it later - when my husband fixes the printer.  It is just a little larger than the template I shared in August.  Hope my video isn't too confusing!  Let me know if you have any questions!



  1. Your slide 'n glide cards are fabulous, Chris! Thanks for sharing your techniques. : )

  2. Amazing....I can't find the template for the movement piece? Also can you repost your video on how to make the card?

  3. So cute! Love your cats!! The little mice make it!!

  4. Oh my.. this came out great. Love the cat that seems to have had a shot of caffeine. You were working on this card when we went up North, right? I want to learn how to make these under your watchful eye. We need to do this soon.

  5. A super creation! I have really enjoyed stopping by and I LOVE your pop up cards I spotted whilst strolling through your blog! Hugs, Lesley
