Expression Plus Phrase Die and Sunflower Shaker card

Hello to all !!!!
This is Anita here.
Summer is at its peak and so are the beautiful sun flower blooms .
CottageCutz has come up with amazing set of Expression Plus dies 35 in total and all of them are awesome. You can check them out here.

There is also a video showcasing the dies made by our design team mate.
Here in this video she shows the beautiful dies and how she has used them on the cards.

For my card today, I have used the beautiful sun flower die and have created a shaker card . Also see how I have added the expression WISH in a 3d way.

Start by die cutting all the designs in white card stock. Cut two foam frames from the stitched round rectangle frame. Cut the Wish frame three times and the sun flower die two times.

Colour all the die cuts as shown with Archival inks

 Adhere the two sponge frames together. Cut another backing frame from a pattern paper. Adhere a transparent sheet of the same size as the frame with glue. Adhere one sunflower face down as shown. Add the sequins and mini glitter balls. Cover with the backing paper.

Distress the frame with Peeled Paint ink. Add the other sub flowers.

Adhere the wish die cut colouring two with green ink giving a little shading and adhere to the last white piece , offsetting a little. Adhere this shaker panel on a card mat. Add twine and the wish phrase. Adhere the whole panel on an A2 card base.

the finished card

Do visit the CottageCutz blog to see the inspirations and stop by at the store for all your die cutting shopping.

Thanks for stopping by.

I really like how you used a sunflower in your shaker as well as on the outside for a very 3-D presentation. Awesome card Anita!
