If you're a cat lover like me, you probably fell in love with the Kitten Smitten Collection from a few years ago.  I'm happy to "revisit" that collection often (in fact I may be hoarding some of it in my stash!)   The same goes for the Kitten Smitten Cut files.  I played with the cut files recently and designed this fun box card... a kitten in a teacup.. could it be any cuter?

The tea bag tag is blank in the card so I decided to use two stamps from the the new Love You Stamp set to add a sentiment.

If you haven't seen the new Occasions Stamp Sets, you're in for a treat!  There are SO many different sentiments in all sizes and fonts... you can mix and match with all of the Doodlebug Stamp sets to make a card for any occasion!

My card even folds flat to fit in a 5x7 envelope.

I created an SVG file for this card and it is available exclusively in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop here.

Here is a quick assembly tutorial for the card...

1)  Start by cutting the pieces of the card.  Stamp a sentiment on the tag if desired.
2)  Glue the cat face onto the insert piece.  The black piece goes behind the face to show through the eyes and mouth.  Add the hearts and paws to the cup.  I used some foam tape behind the paws to give them some dimension.  Fold the "box" into shape and glue.
3)  Add the cup front and back to the box.  Fold the tabs on the kitty insert and add adhesive to the tabs.
4)  Slide the kitty insert into the box.  It should be flush with the bottom of the card.  Press the tabs to the sides of the box to adhere.

All that's left is to send the card off to your favorite crazy cat lady (or man....)!

That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
