14 Stamped Lotus Flower Cards and Project Ideas

Did you know lotus flowers come in many different colors and are often multi-hued? I used to think of them as having very light-colored centers with delicate-pink flower tips. But when we started thinking about adding a lotus to our Greenhouse Society Collection of flower stamps and dies, we did some research. Now I know you can use nearly any color to create life-like stamped lotus flower projects. Here are 14 stamped lotus cards showing some amazing ways to use this month's Lotus stamps and matching dies!
