Aloha Z Box Pop-Up Card

Hi everyone, I have been playing with all the fun images and paper from the Tropical Paradise collection from Heartfelt Creations and created this Z box pop-up card.
I also had the chance to play with a new wonderful product "Crystal Clear" created by the very talented Rajni Chawla and I LOVE it, it adds that special extra touch to all your projects.  
Thank you for your visit.

Finished card size 8” x 6 1/4” (Closed) and 12” x 4” x 6 1/4” (Open).  I followed this tutorial Z Box Pop-Up Card Tutorial http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/zboxpopupcard/?utm_medium=Email&utm_source=ExactTarget&utm_campaign= and changed the measurements to fit my project.  Cut 4 panels of patterned paper, ink edges with distress ink, glue to base of card as pictured.  Use die from Fleur Border Basics Die set to cut the wave edge on the narrow cardstock strip, glue to card to form the Z fold.  Glue the cardstock to create the dividers.  Stamp toucan (twice), flamingos and palm trees on 140lb. watercolor paper with black ink, cut with coordinating dies and color with Zig Clean Color markers.  Toucan- trim sections of the second image and layer on first with foam dots for dimension.  Stamp leaves and greenery on 90lb. watercolor paper with black ink, cut with coordinating dies, color with distress ink and shape with flower shaping kit.  Stamp plumeria flowers and grass on white cardstock with black ink, cut with coordinating dies, color with distress inks and shape with flower shaping kit.  Glue toucan, palm trees and flamingos with foam dots for dimension as pictured.  Glue all greenery, grass and flowers as pictured.  Cut several “Aloha” word from green cardstock, glue them together to make it thicker, glue to card as pictured.  Add Crystal clear to flowers.  Add prills to flower centers.
