Instructions: This card when completed measures 7" x 8 1/4". The measurements for this card are as follows. The card base: 11 12/16" x 8 1/4", make folds at 7" and 9 5/16" along the longer edge. The card foot will then measure 2 5/16" x 8 1/4" when the folds are folded into hill and valley folds. Cut the card front 6 11/16" x 5 1/2", the slider 2 3/4" x 4 1/4". Taking the brown cardstock, cut matting for the card foot, card front and card background about 1/8". Adhere to the card base, but please NOTE, for the card front, adhere only the sides and bottom of the brown cardstock to the card base, leaving the top open. For the cards design paper matting, cut this also 1/8 of an inch smaller than the brown matting. For the card front, find the framed print in the paper collection, cut out and adhere to with 3d foam dots or tape. Taking the slider, matt it the same as the card base and foot. Adhere only up to half an inch of the top of the slider to the center of the card base background. Slip the slider in between the brown cardstock and card front base. The slider will now allow the card to stand when pulled a little. This slider card is strong enough to hold a lot of 3d embellishments when placed.

Find and cut the sentiment also from the collection papers. Make two holes for the twine. Thread the twine through the holes and tie a knot on each end, this will be later adhered so the monkeys will be holding it. Stamp, color and die cut the monkeys, flower borders and palm branches from the matching stamp and die sets. Coloring was done as follows using Noir Color Pencils: Palm branches: 047, 102, 058, Monkey: 100, 008, 026, 101, 098, Flowers: 009, 058, 047, 110. For the flower borders and monkeys cut 4 extra for each image, cut 2 extra for the palm branches. Stack and adhere the stamped images so they form chipboard. When the glue is dry, arrange and adhere in place. Tuck the twine under the monkey's hands. Apply the crystal lacquer to the monkeys and stickles to the flowers.
