G reat encouragement card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:

Insert the Bumblebee rectangle into the Animal Print Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the cardstock inside on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and run through the machine.
Lightly rub the open Bumblebee Ink Pad across the raised surface of the dry embossed Bumblebee rectangle. Make sure you have some Grid Paper under your cardstock to protect your work surface.
As you are ready to stamp using the Wild Cats Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the "you are fierce," "There for you always," or "Thanks you're the beast!" sentiment from the Wild Cats Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Jet Black StazOn or Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad. Stamp it on the bottom right side of the horizontal 1-1/4" x 2-7/8" vanilla strip.
Unlock the Banners Pick A Punch. Slide one short edge of the Basic Black strip into the right side of the punch (the side of the punch with the inward notched top) as far as it will go and get it centered. Punch.
Adhere the stamped vanilla strip over the punched black strip so the notched end of the black strip just sticks out on the right side of the vanilla strip and is centered.
Adhere the layered sentiment/punched strips to the dry embossed and inked Bumblebee rectangle about 3/4" from the bottom so the left edges line up.
Adhere the dry embossed/inked Bumblebee rectangle with sentiment/punched strips attached to the front of the Bumblebee card.
Mount the solid sitting cat image from the Wild Cats Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Bumblebee Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the remaining, vertical vanilla rectangle.
Pick out the large, open, sitting cat die from the Big Cats Dies. Put it on top of the stamped cat image on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is centered over the cat image. Run through the machine.
Mount the cat head with spots image from the Wild Cats Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad or Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad. Stamp it over the top of the previously stamped cat cut out lining up the ears and nose.
Mount the larger grouping of cat spots image from the Wild Cats Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad or Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad. Stamp it over the top of the previously stamped cat cut out two times as shown. Remember to re-ink the image each time.
Adhere the stamped cat cut out to the front of the card so his feet are just above the top left side of the sentiment as shown.
