This is evidently a self-custodial app.
Upon opening CardWallet, the user is given the option of creating a new wallet or importing a pre-existing wallet via a seed phrase.
When we chose the option to create a new wallet, we were provided with a 15-word mnemonic. The app then confirms if you have secured the phrase, and then advises the users to store the mnemonic in a secure place.
It has BTC support which can send and receive. It can also backup and restore the wallet.

Do your own research
In addition to reading our analysis, it is important to do your own checks. Before transferring any bitcoin to your wallet, look up reviews for the wallet you want to use. They should be easy to find. If they aren't, that itself is a reason to be extra careful.
