Hi Everyone! Julie here and am guesting again today with Waffle Flower Crafts. Today I will be creating a fun and easy shaker birthday card using the Lotus stamp and die set.

I am going to use the die of the large lotus flower and cut that out of a piece of card stock. For this card I am going to be using the negative of the die cut for the front of the card.

Next I am going to use some Ranger Ink Dylusions ink sprays which are some of my favorite inks to use and spray them into an empty paint palette. Using a water brush and stamping block I am going to flick the ink off of the stamping block onto my card stock with each of the colors.

Using some Smooth Bristol Card Stock I am going to use the same colors (Pure Sunshine, Bubble Gum Pink and Funky Fuchsia) to create the background of my card.

For the front part of the shaker I am going to use some acetate that works really well when embossing. Using the lotus stamp that matches the die we used earlier, I am going to stamp the flower image with some Versamark ink and then use some yellow embossing powder.

I am then going to line up our stamped image inside of the piece of die cut card stock and adhere the piece of acetate to the back of the card stock.

Using some foam tape and I stuck two pieces together to add some height and placed the tape around the flower image create a little box and also added the tape to cover the back of the card stock. Inside the little box where the flower is added some clear beads, glitter and colored sequence that match the background and then place our background on top and close the little box securely with the glitter and sequence.

Using some adhesive I place our finished piece on the card and the card is complete. 

I hope you enjoyed this video and hope you have a great day! Thanks so much for stopping by!
