Watch this video to learn how to use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape die cuts.

Instructions: To create card base, cut cream cardstock to 12" x 5 1/4" size. Score and fold at 4" and 8". Cut A2 Monkeying Around card front from paper and diecut center with Cut Mat Create die. Use the remaining border as a template to cut opening in the center of card base. Cut a light blue/green Monkeying Around paper to 4" x 5 1/4" size. Sponge outer edges of card front, border panel and light blue/green panel with Cantaloupe ink. Attach border panel around opening of card base. Attach light blue/green panel onto foldout flap.

Stamp palm tree and plumeria border from HCPC-3777 Palm Tree & Monkeys, small hanging monkey from HCPC-3778 Monkeying Around, and large hanging monkey from HCPC-3779 Monkey Antics in Tuxedo Black onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Sponge palm tree leaves with New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves, coconuts with New Sprout and Peanut Brittle, and tree trunks with Desert Sand and Rich Cocoa. Use Cantaloupe for plumerias and Rose Coral in the centers. Use New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves on the plumeria leaves. For monkeys hair, use Peanut Brittle and Rich Cocoa, face and extremities with Desert Sand and a touch of ColorBox Rose Coral on cheeks.

Shape plumeria border, monkeys and palm tree. Cut apart plumeria border. Attach monkeys, plumerias and palm tree as shown. Cut 'Hang In There' sentiment from Monkeying Around paper, sponge edges with Cantaloupe ink and attach onto card. Use Dries Clear glue along with glitter to add sparkle over plumerias, leaves and rest of card as desired. Add droplets of Crystal Lacquer to monkey eyes.
