Lori Whitlock Window Flip Halloween Cards

My mom commissions me to make 135 cards for most holidays and 250 for Christmas as a way of keeping in touch with her circle of friends/family and fellow Bible study members from the different groups she's part of, so I'm always on the lookout for cute holiday cards that I can make in bulk. This Lori Whitlock Window Flip Card fit the bill! I used my Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut out the card elements (I used print and cut for the kitty and pumpkins) and then spent several hours assembling the cards using my tape runner and foam tape strips. 

Holding the cards closed:

Here's what they look like when you open the card:

And finally a view of what they look like when fully open using 

the sentiment to make them into easel cards:

Envelopes I printed with "bugs and hisses" sentiment:
