Sweet Life Cards {Bo Bunny Design Team}


I know, we are all in the mood for Spring! That's why this week I chose Bo Bunny's cheerful and beautiful 'Sweet Life' collection papers and embellishments to make a couple of cards.  Spring is synonymous with weddings, so I thought it would be fun to create a bridal shower invite using 2 sizes of the Bo Bunny paper doilies.


It's super easy to create this cute little invite card using the Bo Bunny Doilies, some Sweet Life paper and some double dot cardstock.  Here is a quick little step by step on how to fold the dress design....


The key to getting a nice frothy look to the skirt is folding slightly off center so that you can see the layers.  Here is a close-up pic of the finished dress....


I simply added a strip of the green (Clover) double dot paper and made a little 'ribbon' for the dress and added a tiny white rose to finish the look.


A dear family friend just passed away and I wanted to make a sympathy card that could bring a little cheer to the family. So I used one of the pretty floral papers from Sweet Life, fussy cut some of floral images from another of the papers and added another folded doily and some coordinating buttons from this collection to add a finishing touch.


I also added a pretty pink blossom from the Blush package of Bo Bunny Blossoms. I attached my fussy cut little flowers with some foam adhesive dots to help them stand out from the page a little.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I really appreciate all the kind comments and feedback :)

Are the Doilies cream color because I only see white on Bo Bunny's sight

Keith Swallom said...

Gabrielle, I find all of your art absolutely beautiful. I also thank you for showing me how you achieve your "looks". I have looked at other blogs and they offer classes, but it's not possible for me to get to Russia, Europe or Australia! Your art is stunning and your generosity heartwarming. You are, by far, my favorite. Thank you, Gaylane

Gabrielle Pollacco said...

Thanks so much for your kind feedback on my work! I hope you have a blast playing with your mixed media products! xo

Gabrielle Pollacco said...

Hi Heidi, the doilies are white...its probably my lighting that makes them look cream. xo

Gabrielle Pollacco said...

Wow, thanks so much for your kind words and feedback on my tutorials, you made my day Gaylane! xo
