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

Instructions: Make a 5" X 7" card base using white cardstock. Cut a mat of Kraft cardstock 6 5/8" X 4 5/8" and glue to card base. Cut a piece of designer paper from paper collection 4 1/2" X 6 1/4". Cut a 1 1/2" X 4 1/2" strip of beige from paper pad. Cut edges with border essentials die. Glue printed paper to Kraft mat and glue die cut strip to bottom overlapping a little. Cut one length of the beige paper as long as the die. Trim the edge to 1/8" and glue to right side of card front as pictured.

Stamp one monkey in lounge on white cardstock. Stamp eight of each size leaf onto green cardstock. Use black ink for all. Ink edges of leaves with forest glade ink. Any dark green ink will do. Color monkey using E00, 000, & 0000 for face, hands, and feet. Use R00 for cheeks and E04 for lips. Color fur using E70, 71, 74, & 79. Color hat using Y21, & 26. Color lounge using E37, 35, & 33. I colored what I believe to be an olive in the martini glass using YG03. Color umbrella in drink using BG11, 000, RV13, & 02 on alternating stripes. Fussy cut the image out with scissors.

Cut a 1" X 3 1/4" strip of beige paper and stamp sentiment on it. Cut dove tail ends on strip with scissors. Shape leaves using the 8mm nip from the shaping kit. Bend 1/2" or so of the ends under and glue large and small alternately across the top. Bend the sentiment strip and glue to right side of card front as pictured. Add the monkey to card front using pop-dots. Glue a few sequins for a little sparkle to finish your card.
