Watch this video https://youtu.be/rdsIOVMXjIQ to learn how to create flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
Instructions: This card measures 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" square when completed. To start, create the base of this card from kraft cardstock. Cut a piece of 8 1/2" x 11" kraft cardstock to 5 1/4" x 11". Score it at 5 1/4" and fold it. Cut a slightly smaller piece of patterned paper from the collection. Plus cut the card panel from the collection to layer onto the patterned paper piece. Adhere these together. Stamp the palm tree onto kraft cardstock using brown ink pad. Die cut the palm tree with the matching die. Using a sponge, sponge the trunk of the tree with brown ink and sponge the branches of the tree with olive ink. Stamp the flower spray onto white cardstock and color the flowers with the sparkle markers noted above. Stamp the Wildwood Florals stamp set onto peach cardstock using matching peach ink. Die cut with the matching dies and use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape the flowers. Cut the sentiment panel from the collection and use scissors to add the banner detail on each end. Stamp the banana onto yellow cardstock with brown ink. Die cut the banana with the matching die. Assemble the card as shown, using 3d foam squares to pop up the palm tree, banana and sentiment. Add the flower spray and the wildwood florals to the trunk of the palm tree to complete the card.
