Instructions: This card when completed measures 7 1/2" x 8 1/4". The measurements for this card are as follows. The card base: 11 10/16" 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 9/16" x 6 9/16" and the slider, 2 3/4" x 4 1/4". The slider stay, 4 1/4" x 2 3/4". Taking the design paper from the paper collection, cut matting for the card foot, card front, slider and card background about two sixteenths of an inch smaller than the base. Adhere to the card base. Taking the slider, adhere only up to half an inch of the top of the slider to the center of the card base background. Taking the slider stop, place this on the back of the card front so the slider will slide up and down to allow the card to stand and lie flat. This slider allows the card to stand without falling when loaded with 3d embellishments.

Find the sentiments in the paper collection, cut to size and prepare by backing with 3d foam tape or squares. Stamp, color and die cut the image of these two monkeys and two large palm branches using the above sets from the Monkeying Around collection. Coloring of images were done as follows: Spectrum Noir Color Pencils: Leaves: 047, 102, Monkey: 100, 008, 026, 101, 098, Flowers: 009. Cut 4-6 die cuts extra to make into chipboard by adhering in layers. Place and adhere the double bowed yellow ribbon across the foot of the card. Adhere the sentiment to the center of the bow with an extra foam dot if needed. Place the longer sentiment below the bow. Adhere the palm branches to the top right of the bow, then the pair of monkeys. Add one of the flowers from the flower border to above the monkey’s ear. To finish apply stickles to the flowers.
