For you cat lovers, here is a birthday card. What this post doesn’t show (I don’t have the ability to post video) is that the kitty is on a spring mechanism which makes him wiggle. It’s pretty cute if I do say so myself.

….. the pop-up mechanism in this card is called the “Twist Circle Pop up” and it is a die from Karen Burniston, the cat is named ‘Whiskers and he is also a KB die, except I ran the individual pieces through my Scan n Cut, and enlarged them, then assembled him, he is about approximately 5 times bigger than he would normally be.

All the cardstock, ink, designer paper, and stamps (inside and out) are from Stampin’ Up.

You can purchase “motion wobblers” online but I make my own (the wiggle mechanism behind the cat) I just take a piece of wire and wrap it around a pen to make a spring, then I hot glue punched circles to the top and the bottom of the spring, and voila you have handmade motion wobbler that you can glue to your card and the element in which you want to wiggle. I actually have 2 behind the cat because he is so big.
