Papers used: Kraft, Black and White Cardstock

Creative Expressions "Pawprint Lattice" Embossing Folder by Sue Wilson
Step-by-Step Tutorial
 Start by die-cutting the cats in black, white and textured cardstocks.
Now cut the grids, top panels, stamp a sentiment and die-cut from the Frames and Tags Piereced Flags die set,  and adhere in this manner, (leaving portion of flag end to fold under panel's edge for a cleaner look). The cat cuts are shown here just to give an idea of where to place them once all the panels have been adhered together.

 Prepare the black base panel by die-cutting with the Stitched Lattice Frames. Then dry-emboss a white panel with the Lattice EF (or any pet themed EF). Back with Kraft Paper to continue the colors.   Then adhere top panels as shown here.
 Now adhere and layers, using foam adhesive behind the top grid panel to give the card dimension. At this point, adhere all those adorable cats layered together add foam tape to back of each and place on each mini grid section. The card will start to come together like this.
 The finishing touches were a bow and 3 small pearls on the sentiment panel.

That's it! Hope you liked the simplicity and will give these dies a try!
