Kit Cat Clock-inspired Rectangle Pull Card

Continuing on my quest to style the new Whiskers the Cat character as all the "famous cats", I bring today's offering, which is based on the famous Kit Cat clock. My clock doesn't have a swinging tail or moving eyes, though. I wasn't quite up to that much paper engineering, although I did use the Rectangle Pull Card for some fun movement inside the card.

My version of the Kit Cat clock is made using the Clock and Gears die for the body, Whiskers the Cat for the head and tail, the Props1 bow tie and the paw prints from Props4. After assembling everything from white and black cardstock I pounced the whole clock with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder for a glossy look.

When the card is opened I added a greeting made with the script word "hello" from the Rectangle Accordion and my own "THERE" cut from the ECD Alphabet 1 Caps die. I also added more paw prints to "hold" the greeting, the heart from the Rectangle Accordion and the swirlydo from the Rectangle Pull Card. The stitched circle dies from the Ring Accordion made the perfect base for the greeting. After pouncing and embossing the greeting circle I added it to the spinner die that comes with the Rectangle Pull Card. (Learn how to use it here: Skip to 6:44 for RPC directions)

As the card is pulled open the circle starts to spin up into place.

Inside the card is another Kit Cat clock and a white rectangle for writing a personal greeting. I made this as a generic "hello" card but it would also make a great Happy Birthday card.

Here's a little Vine video so you can see the card in action. The tuck slot at the top keeps the card closed so you don't get an accidental reveal. Simply pull to open.
