Instructions: This card is a 5" x 7" size. Take a 10" x 7" white cardstock, score at 5" and fold. Cut a 4 7/8" x 6 7/8" mat from black cardstock & glue to card base. Cut a 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of white cardstock and emboss with dotty folder. Cut one 9" length of each color mesh ribbon (can substitute or omit this step). Attach to bottom of white, 1/4" up from bottom, overlapping slightly, turn ends to the back and glue in place over black mat. 

On white cardstock stamp, one Toucan, three sets of petals of the next to largest flower, and two of the third size down petals with black ink. Cut all with matching dies. Color one side of petals using YG01, and edges, front & back with B02 & 05. Using video listed above make three of each size flower. Paint petals with a coat of sparkle pen & add Gala Glitz for centers. Stamp two each of the leaf flourishes & six sets of the two petal leaf cluster onto green cardstock using black ink. Cut with matching dies. Ink edges with evergreen ink. 

Color Toucan foliage using the G20, YG03, 11, 01, 61, 63, & 67. Color blue area of beak and feet using B02 & 05. Color green park of beak using YG01, 03, & 11. Orange part of beak and wing swirl using YR00, 02, & 07. Color red on beak, wing, antherium flower, and tail using R32, 35, 37, & 39. Color head & parts of tail using Y000, 11, 13, & 17. Color body & remaining tail feathers using C3, 5, & 7. B05, & YG03 for eye. Cut Toucan out with matching die. Cut two fun foam Toucans with this die also. Trace die around outside edge onto black cardstock and fussy cut with scissors. Glue one fun foam piece to back of colored Toucan, then glue this to black mat you have cut out. Glue the remaining fun foam to the back of the black mat. Using the picture as a guide, glue this to the card front. Add stickos around Toucan as pictured, avoiding far left of card front. Arrange and glue in place flowers on left side of card, tucking in and gluing greens where needed. You can snip them apart to make them fit. Cut one "Aloha" from glitter paper and one from fun foam, then glue these together. Glue in place to finish your card.
