Watch this video for tips on using the border basics dies. Watch this video to learn how to use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape die cuts.

Instructions: Create a 6" x 6" card base using white card stock. Locate card panel with circular center and coconut image. Die cut circular coconut image using Spellbinders die. Next die cut a circular piece from foam (I've cut two and adhered them together as my foam was quite thin), as well as a piece of clear cardstock using the largest and next size down in the Spellbinders die collection. Locate the polka dotted paper and die cut a coordinating circular front for the shaker portion you've just die cut. Cut the pre made card panels pictured for the front of the card as shown, with monkey card panel being cut smaller to mat onto polka dot background. Ink all edges using a light brown ink. Die cut the edge of the smaller mat using the leaf border from the Delicate Border Basics Die. Adhere to background mat, and then adhere to card base. Die cut opening side of card base using Classic Border Basics Die and die cut center of card front as shown to reveal shaker portion. Leaving circle die in place, trace around outer edge. Remove die and then carefully trim to enlarge circle cut to give shaker more room. Choose 6" x 6" card panel to adhere to inside. Ink with a light brown colored ink and apply to inside of card.

Using black ink and white card stock, stamp an assortment of palm fronds, the corner monkey image, the monkeys swinging on vines, one banana, one coconut and several inkings of plumeria flowers. Die cut with coordinating dies and color using inks and sponge daubers. Shape all elements using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Create a palm frond cluster on upper corner of card and then adhere corner monkey embellishment as shown. Create coconut and palm frond cluster on opposite corner on bottom of card as shown. Trim out sentiment from paper collection, ink all edges with a brown colored ink, shape slightly and adhere to card as shown. Trim apart monkeys playing on vines and flowers. Adhere one monkey to sentiment cluster as shown along with one shaped flower. Adhere remaining shaped flowers to card front as shown.

Build shaker portion of card starting with preprinted coconut image, adding foam cut out on top using Glossy Accents. Add banana, two flowers, two monkeys, microbeads and sequins and adhere clear card stock over top using Glossy Accents. Adhere polka dotted designer paper circular die cut to top of clear card stock using Glossy Accents. Allow to fully dry, and then add to card base as shown. Add glitter to all palm fronds. Apply Stickles to flowers using fingertip and then apply a sparkly flower center.
