Summer Rose Garden - Center Step Card Tutorial

Today I have a beautiful summery Center Step Card to share with you. To create this card I started by creating the base out of cream colored cardstock using this tutorial from SplitCoast Stampers.

I stamped Wood Grain Background with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on suede cardstock and then die cut the fence with On the Fence Spellbinders Die and adhered the fence to the front of the card.
I stamped Large Trailing Butterflies in Memento black ink and colored with Copic Markers.
I stamped the sentiment from Rose Garden in black ink too.
Then I stamped the rose and leaf images from Rose Garden, on pugnacious white cardstock, colored with copic markers, and then cut them out and adhered to the card front.
I stamped the rose a couple more times on scraps of pugnacious white cardstock so that I could create a 3D rose.  I showed how to do this on this past post.
Then I stamped the Large Trailing Butterflies on, pugnacious white cardstock and colored them.
I cut some of them out and adhered to the card to create 3D butterflies.
Here's one more close up of the details...
I hope you enjoyed today's card and that you'll give it a try!
