Watch this tutorial https://youtu.be/6B5t9exttw0 to see how to shape the plumerias.

Instructions: Start by assembling the shadow box and attaching a 6 " x 6" piece of paper from the Tropical Paradise Paper Collection onto the inside of the box. The frame and sides were also covered by paper from the same collection. The wavy panels on the inside of the box were made from a flip fold card from the same package. I cut off 2 of the panels and trimmed them slightly lower and covered them with paper from the Tropical Paradise Paper Collection. The large Toucan image was stamped on white cardstock with Espresso Truffle and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Pebbles Chalks. After coloring I felt that it blended into the background a bit to much so I traced the outside edge of the die with a pencil and fussy cut to create a frame in the same shape but slightly larger. The Hibiscus flowers were stamped on white cardstock with Espresso Truffle and die cut with the matching die. They were colored with Tangelo and Rose inks before shaping with the Flower Shaping tool and accented with Gala Glitz. The Plumeria flowers were stamped on white cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder and die cut with the matching die. They were also colored with Tangelo and Rose inks before shaping with the Flower Shaping tool and accented with Gala Glitz. The Leaves and Palms were stamped on white cardstock with Espresso Truffle and die cut with the matching die before distressing with Fern Green ink. The Flamingos were stamped on white cardstock with Espresso Truffle and die cut with the matching die before being colored with Worn Lipstick. Finally the Parrot on the right side of the card was stamped on white cardstock with Espresso Truffle and die cut with the matching die before being colored with Pebbles Chalks.
