A Cute Girlie Card

Sugar and spice and everything nice...
need a card for sweet little girl? If so, then look no further than GCD Studios Pure Bliss collection! It is chock full of darling papers, patterns and sweet embellishments! I especially love the yellow in this collection.

Here is a card I made using the Pure Bliss collection:

I started with the colorful floral paper and built the rest of the card around it. I pulled colors from the floral paper to help embellish the card.

I had a blast layering embellishments on this card! When layering, I prefer to use foam tape to give the layers even more dimension. And how about I let you in on a little secret of mine.... when I work with stickers (such as the "Hello" sticker), I add a small piece of cardstock on the back of the sticker which then allows me to add foam tape to the back of the sticker, rather than just adhering the sticker flat on the card. Easy to do, and yet lends a bigger punch to the overall card design.
