Tropical Paradise

It's Heartfelt Wednesday and here is my card this week using 
the Tropical Paradise collection.

I know we have had Mother's Day here in the UK already but
over in the USA it's May 14th!

Making this card was such fun, all the bright colours really cheered me up,
and yes I got glitter everywhere! lol

Here are some EZ tips for making the Plumeria flowers

EZ steps to make gorgeous Tropical Plumeria flowers!

1. Stamp the Tropical Plumeria flowers using the ColorBox Berrylicious ink onto white card. 
Using the Precision Daubers colour the outer edge of the flower petals.

2. Turn the flowers over and ink the outer edge of the underside of the petals.

3. Using Memento Cantaloupe ink colour the rest of the petal. 
From the back shape the area you have just inked with a circular motion.

4. Using the curling tip from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit curl the outer of the petal over.

5. Snip into both of the petals for the flower to allow easy shaping.

6. Using hot glue adhere the petals over each over like a pin wheel effect.

7. Bring the petals together to form the flower and adhere in place with hot glue. 
Shape the petals using your fingers to create the flower.

Use your flowers to create gorgeous projects! Add prills into the centres 
and glitter the edges of the petals too for different effects! Just have lots of crafty fun!
