You will find this paper with the rainbow print already printed to size in the paper pad block.

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 chipboard made from 5 layers extra card stock cuts. 


Able and below you can see both sides of the card-foot


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. Put aside to dry, then you are done.


Don't you love all the bright colours in this collection? I love this background. I normally don't go for the brights...but this was perfect for this card...I thought anyway.
Till next time...have a happy scrappy inky day.

Take the A 4 cardstock and make 2 fold lines at 2 quarter inches each to form the foot of the card. Fold this to a hill and valley fold.

Adhere all the papers in place with tape or glue. Adhere the card front to the left of the card foot. With the 3d foam double dots adhere the card side front to the right of the card front and card foot.
Taking the yellow ribbon, make a small double half bow and adhere in place with the hot glue gun. 
Make the “Aloha” sentiment by layering and gluing 6 die cuts made from the cardstock. Stamp, die cut and color the embellishments from the collection. The finished parrot is reinforced by die cutting and adhering 4 extra layers together.  Arrange and adhere all the flowers and leaves in place. Add the parrot then the sentiment. You can adhere the arrangement either with wet glue or the hot glue gun I used the latter. Adhere the slider to the top of the card in line with the card front. Place the slider guide to the back of the card front so the slider will slide to let the card stand on it’s own. Apply the rhinestones to the flower centers and to the slider head. Apply the                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       crystal Lacquer to the sentiment and stickles to the flowers and parrot.
