Instructions: This finished card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". The base of the card is made from kraft cardstock cut to 4 1/4 x 11" and scored at 5 1/2". Cut a piece of flamingo cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4". Cut a card panel from the collection and layer these two together. Tie the ribbon into a bow along the bottom of this panel. Set aside while you create the other elements.

Die cut the “Aloha” sentiment from Flamingo cardstock using the die in the Tropical Parrots die set. Stamp the Plumeria flowers and all the other leaves onto mixed media paper using Timber Brown Staz-on ink. Watercolor the flowers and leaves with the glitter pens and a waterbrush. Once these are dry, use the matching dies to cut them out. Using the Deluxe flower shaping kit and a hot glue gun, shape and assemble the flowers and add some Diamond stickles to the middles of each flower.  Assemble the card as shown using using 3d foam squares for the flowers. Adhere everything together to complete the card.
