Hello Sunshine Card

Hello, Friends! I am up on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Blog. Today is the start of my once-a-month video tutorial series for GSLCuts. I will be here the third Friday of each month with a video tutorial, slideshow, or Snapguide! 

Today, I am sharing a sweet, springtime card with you. This is an 8" x 8" card that can be used to hold a gift card for your favorite friend. It can also be used as a scrapbook layout or part of a mini album!
I used soft, springtime colors and an adorable image, along with lovely chipboard embellishments...and tons of flowers!
The paper set the tone, so I colored my image and my chipboard embellishments to match the paper. The sweet image is a digital stamp from Wee Stamps, which I colored with Copic markers. For this project, you need the following Gypsy Soul Laser Cut items:
I covered the chipboard with gesso and pigment ink.

If you have been wondering about my card-making process, this is a nice peeky into how I go about assembling a card!
Thanks for looking!
