Before styling, we'll check out what data we're dealing with by dumping it into the browser to see how it fits with some initial HTML structure.

Once the structure is in place we'll start applying style to the card at the root level. The way I like to think of the root level is the styles that affect the edges of the card and only apply those styles to it. For example, we'll add a background color and border-radius to the card we are styling. If we want to add padding or style to the content of the card, we will group that content and apply the necessary styling directly which won't affect the root level styles.
