Pop-Up Cards for Halloween

Cats in the Dark
Originally uploaded by desireux.

Last night I designed two new cards for my Halloween pop-up card line. I wanted something unique and remembered a design from ages ago when I was probably 10 or 11.

When I was a little girl, I used to join art competitions and was rather serious about them. My parents were very supportive, and rather serious about it too. Before the actual competition, there would be brainstorming and practices. One competition was organized by the Sarawak Cat Museum and of course the theme was "Cats". I remember trying to draw cats, but my cats were not the pretty cats that would win competitions. My mum came up with a brilliant idea of having a totally black background and just having the eyes glowing. Oh what a great idea that was, and I had a great time drawing and giving those cat's eyes different colors, shapes and sizes. And "Cats In the Dark" won the first prize. It even was made into a post card sold at the museum. So if you go to the Sarawak Cat Museum and see a child's drawing of "Cats in the Dark" on a postcard, its most probably mine :)

Stay tuned for more halloween pop-up cards. I'm excited!
