Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 " size, score and fold at 4 1/4" to create card base. Ink the edges with Sunflower ink. Cut the panel from the Sugarspun paper collection, die cut oval using die from the small oval set. Ink the edges with Magenta Hue ink. Cut clear cardstock slightly smaller than panel and adhere on the back of panel.

To create the 3D cavity, cut 10 pieces of cardstock slightly smaller than panel. Die cut 9 of them using slightly larger oval from Eyelet Oval Large set. Adhere these 9 pieces together. On the last piece, stamp sentiment using Magenta Hue ink. Very lightly swirl Forget-Me-Not on the sentiment and Sunflower where the candle will be. Adhere the previous oval frames onto this stamped panel to finish the 3D cavity. Generously apply dries clear glue around in oval edges and allow to dry. This creates a sealed barrier, so your confetti won't wedge between the layers of paper.

Stamp confetti in Sunflower ink twice and Magenta Hue twice. For quick and easy coloring of confetti use Stack and Store dauber to apply color to the front and back of cardstock. Add Crystal Lacquer to yellow confetti and brush around with sponge, front and back of cardstock. While lacquer is still wet, add crystal glitter on both sides of cardstock. Allow to dry. Add Nuvo Mousse to pink confetti, to both the front and back of cardstock using hydra sponge and allow to dry. Once all is completely dry die cut using coordinating dies. Now both sides of confetti is colored and embellished and ready for card.

Stamp cupcakes, flower pot, macarons, and cake pops in Jet Black ink and die cut with coordinating dies. Stamp Cake Stand twice in Magenta Hue ink and die cut with coordinating die, color lightly with Red Geranium ink. Stamp birthday sentiment on yellow panel from paper collection using Magenta Hue ink and die cut using small arrow. Ink edges of arrow in sunflower ink. Color the remaining images along with Stack & Store daubers to color cupcakes with Vivid Chartreuse, Sepia, Magenta Hue, Sunflower, Forget-Me-Not, Majestic Violet, Red Geranium. Use same inks for cake pops, very lightly add Forget-Me-Not to glass vase. For flower pot use Sunflower, Magenta Hue, Vivid Chartreuse, Forget Me Not. Mon the macarons use Sunflower, Magenta Hue, Vivid Chartreuse, Forget-Me-Not.

Use the stylus from the HCST1-401 Deluxe Flower shaping kit to shape the cupcakes, cake pops, macarons and arrow. Use scissors to cut second cake stand in half, using the base as the second layer on the cake stand. Adhere images on card panel as shown.

Insert confetti and prills in cavity, adhere panel on top to create shaker. Adhere shaker on card base.
