Gone... but not forgotten Cat Sympathy Card

Hello  and welcome back. I'm here to share a special Cat Sympathy Card called
Gone... but never forgotten!
Card Recipe
Very simple to make with these die cuts. Just add some dry embossing, layering and a bow.

Products used;
Sue Wilson Designs - Shadow Boxes -  Stitched Lattice Frames

Memento Dye Ink Pad - Tuxedo Black
Stamps: ODBD - Never Forgotten
Papers used: Kraft, Black and White Cardstock
Embellishments; White Satin Ribbon (my fave type because its easy to make and shape multi-looped elegant bows),  Flat-back Pearls
Creative Expressions "Pawprint Lattice" Embossing Folder by Sue Wilson
Step-by-Step How-To
 Start by die-cutting the cats in black white and a textured cardstock.
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 a base panel with the Stitched Lattice Frames, the dry-embossed panel with Lattice EF or any pet themed EF, (backed with Kraft Paper).  Top panelsget adhered at this point too in oder shown.
 Now adhere and layer all panels, using foam adhesive behind top grid to give the card dimension. At this point, adhere all those adorable cats layering the layered cuts to each grid section. The card will come together like this.
 The finishing touches were a bow and 3 small pearls on the sentiment panel.

That's it! Hope you will give these dies a try!
