Watch this video to learn how to create flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Instructions: Begin with 6" x 6" card panel from collection. From another 12" x 12" paper, cut a 7" x 7" square, score each end at 6.75" and .25"; then at 6.5" and .5". Fold and score to create a mini shadow box for your card front. Attach a card panel inside, I am using the one with the resting monkey on the hammock. Cut down to 5" x 5" to fit the shadow box. Cut and stamp out 4 palm trees. Colour with peeled paint and antique linen on the palms and trunk with vintage photo. Color coconuts with peeled paint ink. Shadow with vintage photo ink. Attach one to outside of box as shown; attach second to inside to mimic the trees; from other two, cut off the palms and tuck them in to hide the resting monkey a bit so they look like saw palmetto branches. Look for the Monkey on the Adirondack chair and fussy cut out using scissors, craft knife and healing mat. Using ink, highlight edges with coordinating inks and shadow his hat. Using foam adhesive pop him on the front. Stamp sentiment and adhere to front of shadow box as shown. From the Palm tree set, cut out four sets of the smaller plumeria flower set, colour with rose coral ink and cut apart, we are just using the flower part. Attach pollen to center and adhere as shown. Cut out two sets of the palm branches and color. Adhere to outside corner as shown. Detail palm trees, palmetto branches and fern with glitter.
