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

Instructions: Start with 1 piece of cardstock 6" x 11" and 1 piece of cardstock 2 1/4" x 6". Scor the larger piece of cardstock at 6", 7", 9" and 10" and the smaller piece of cardstock at 1/2" and at 1 1/2" marks. With the larger piece of cardstock, place glue on the 1" strip and glue 4" down from the top of the 6" x 6" section. Now that the smaller section of card stock and place glue on the 1/2" flap and glue to the top of the 6" x 6" panel. Once cured, place some glue on the bottom end and open the card so it stands up and glue the larger piece as shown. This sounds harder then it is, just take your time and examine how the card opens and closes before gluing pieces together. The smaller panel can be attached wherever you desire, I chose about a 1/2" in from the right side. Finish off the card base by attaching a die cut from the Botanic Window Die and start to decorate. 

The love birds were stamped on white cardstock with Espresso Truffle and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Pebbles Chalks. The flowers were stamped on white cardstock with Moonlight White Ink and heat embossed with Fine White Embossing Powder and die cut with the matching die. They were colored with using a Dove Blender pen and Rose Bud ink before shaping with the Flower Shaping tool. The larger parrot was stamped on white cardstock with Espresso Truffle and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Pebbles Chalks and accented with Pink Stickles and DecoArt Paper Effects Golden Pearl. The leaves accents and Palm Tree were stamped on white cardstock with Olive Grove and die cut with the matching die before distressing with Pearlescent Ivy.
