Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - Center Step Card

Hello Friends!
Happy New Year!! I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season!!
Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday! For my Center Step card today I used the beautiful Vintage Floret Collection stamps, dies and designer paper. I love how everything coordinates and it makes it so much easier to design a project.

Supplies Used:

Kraft Cardstock by Bazzill Paper, Natural White Cardstock by Neenah Papers, Black Tuxedo Memento Ink, Vintage Photo, Victorian Velvet, Peeled Paint and Broken China Distress Inks by Rangers, Seam Binding Ribbon, Pearls, Glue Gun.

Card base measures about  7” x  6”. Make Center Step Card base by following instructions on SplitCoast Stampers using Kraft cardstock. Cover the card base with Vintage Floret Paper Collection.
Die cut biggest rectangle from the Romantic Rectangles die set using Kraft cardstock and adhere to center of card. Cut a 3 3/8” x 5 3/8” piece of Designer Paper and glue on Romantic Rectangle.  Cut sentiment from the Vintage Floret Paper Collection and adhere to center of card.
Stamp flowers and leaves in black ink on Natural White Cardstock using the Vintage Floret flower stamps. Die cut with coordinating dies from the Vintage Floret Die set. Color flowers and leaves with distress inks. Shape flowers and leaves, layer petals to make roses and adhere to card as pictured. Decorate flowers with pearls.
Color seam binding ribbon with Broken China distress ink, make a bow and adhere to card.
