Watch this tutorial to see how to shape the plumeria.

Instructions: The designer paper was selected from the Tropical Paradise Designer Paper Collection. Use the Foldout Card as a template for cutting the panels. I chose to cover the panels on the front and back sides of the foldouts.  

Cut the border trim 6 times from green cardstock using the Flour border Basics Die. Each panel has the trim applied to the front and back. This is a great tutorial on creating Border Essential Die -  HERE. Cut four ornate border die and adhere together with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive. This will give the die a lot of strength.  Adhere to the  top of the base panel. 

Stamp the tropical bird images on Stonehenge paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Color the birds with Prismacolor pencils. The following Prismacolor Combos were used. (Cockatoo Image) - Jasmine, Terra Cotta, Peach Beige, White, Putty Beige, Spring Green Kelp Green, Sepia, Lemon Yellow, Pink Rose, Mulberry, Lavender. (Flamingo)- Putty Beige, Peach Beige, Terra Cotta, Sienna Brown, Dark Brown. Die cut the birds with corresponding die. I prefer to cut 3 extra layers of each bird from left over scrap cardstock  and adhere the layers with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive. This will add thickness and dimension to the images. 

Stamp the Plumeria on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink. Die cut the flower with the Tropical Plumeria Die. Sponge the petals with Berrylicious ColorBox Ink and with Squeezed Lemon Distress Ink. Stamp and die cut the leaves from the Tropical Cockatoo set. Sponge with the Bamboo Leaves, Olive Grove and Teal Memento Ink. Shape the Plumeria and leaves with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Tip - It helps to lightly mist the back of the water before shaping. This will help to break down the paper fibers! Attach plumeria and leaves to card.

Die cut the "Aloha" from the Orange designer paper the the Tropical Paradise Paper Collection. Pop up the tropical birds with dimensional dots and adhere the word  "Aloha" with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.
