Quilled Cat Farewell

One of our executive administrators has found a job downtown and moved on in her career.  So, I had to make a farewell card for her.  I know she likes cats, so I made sure to use one!  I used my quilled kitty and made a window card.  I actually ordered some frames to make a shaped window but it didn't arrive in time, so I had to use the only window-like die cut I had at the time, which is just a scalloped square.

This is actually a version of my quilled cat love you window card.  Instead of dangling a heart, though, this kitty has an upbeat balloon!  It says, "Congrats on your new job."  Then, on the inside, it says, "You will be missed."

The kitty is a little bulky to be on the inside, but since I was hand-delivering it, it wasn't really a problem.  I popped the balloon up on foam tape so it would have the same dimension as the quilled cat.

She liked it!


  1. that is too cute, she's gonna love it

  2. This is so cute. So sweet of you to make it for her.

  3. Oh my goodness how CUTE!!! Is the cat made from yarn? Love this idea and need to make a baby shower card today...

  4. The cat is made from paper, actually. It's an artform called paper quilling, also known as paper filigree.

  5. Ah - will have to look into this! Thx~!
