Watch this tutorial to see how to shape the plumerias.

Instructions: This card when completed fits into an envelope measuring 9 1/2 x 7 1/2" (24.1 cm x 19 cm ). To make the card base take the A4 card stock and make 2 folds 2 1/4" each to form the foot of the card. Fold this to form a hill and valley fold. Cut the card front base at 5 9/16" x 6 12/16" ( 14.2 cm x 17.1 cm ) The card slider at 2 10/16" x 4 1/2" ( 6.7 cm x 11.5 cm ) For the slider guide cut at 1 x 3 and 12/16" ( 9.5 cm x 3 cm ). This is not matted but does have a half circle punched into the length to make it easier for the slider to go in. For this card make an extra card front from cardboard measuring 6 x 6" ( 15.2 cm x 15.2 cm ) The matting for this will be the same measurements. You will find this paper with the rainbow print in the Tropical Parasise paper. Ink the edges with the green distress ink. For all other parts of the card the matting will be cut 1/16" smaller at all edges. (1mm ). Ink all the matting papers then adhere to the card base and fronts. Adhere the slider to the center top of the card using double sided tape and clear drying glue. Adhere the card front to the card base then adhere the slider guide so the slider can slide in between the guide and card front. Once all is dry and secure adhere the extra card front with 3d foam dots to the card front. 

Make the sentiment by die cutting the words Thinking of You six times. Adhere all the layers together then color with the intense pencil to match the colors from the paper. Make the five ( 5 ) large flowers and enough leaves as fillers to arrange at the foot of the card. The flamingos are colored then adhered to the layers of five ( 5 ) extra card stock cuts. Tuck and adhere under the leaves as seen in the photo of the card. Adhere the bling to the flower centers and each side of the sentiment. Add stardust stickles to the flowers and a few leaves, last apply the crystal Lacquer to the flamingo pair.
