It's time for a little Heartfelt Creations inspiration! I love making projects with lots of white and a burst of color! Today I have a center-step card doing just that with a burst of purple and green!
Here's a bit of a side view so you can see the step part of the card base.
I used the beautiful dress image from the Adorned in Roses Set. I colored the image with pencils and mineral spirits, fussy cut it and added a little Amethyst Microbeads here and there to the “lace” on the dress. The flowers, leaves and sentiment were all colored with inks to match the coloring of the dress image. I added Lavender & Lace Mini Prills to the flower centers.
Here's a close up of the flowers and a little bit of the dress with the microbeads.
The card base is embellished with the Raindrops On Roses Die using white card stock. I also added a little lace trim, adhesive pearls, white netting and a silk bow. You can see complete instructions at the bottom of the post and you can also click on the photos for a closer look.
Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week! There's also a sneak peak of the next collection being released on May 14th, the Sweet Lullaby Collection!

Make center step card with white card stock using tutorial found here adjusting measurement of base to 6" x 11" instead of 5 1/2" x 11". Die cut Raindrops on Rose Die with white card stock, cutting 2 of the decorative piece and 1 lattice piece for the center. Trim the 2 decorative pieces to 1" to fit on each side of the card. Glue all 3 pieces down as pictured using Art Institute Glue and Metal Tip. Use Scor-tape to add lace trim on bottom panel of card.
Stamp dress image on Solar White with Onyx Black and color with pencils. Fussy cut image and add Amethyst Microbeads on lacy parts of dress using glue and metal tip. Add to card as shown using pop dots.
On Solar White with Onyx Black, stamp flowers and pick an assortment of the smaller flowers. Color with the 3 PowderPuff Chalk Inks until you get the desired color to match the dress image. Shape with the mat and tool kit and add Lavender & Lace Prills to the centers using glue. Stamp leaves from Open Leaf Set on Solar White with Onyx Back. I used 2 of the 3-leaf and 1 of the 8-leaf images. Die cut these with matching die. Color leaves with Peeled Paint Ink and sponge. Shape leaves with mat and tool kit.
Cut a 4" piece of White Netting, tie piece string around the center to create a fake bow. Make vertical cuts on ends so it feathers out. Add as pictured with glue dots. Arrange leaves (I cut the 8-leaf image into 2 pieces) and flowers (saving 1 small flower for bow) on card as pictured and adhere using glue gun. Stamp sentiment on Solar White with Onyx Black, die cut with Ovals Die and ink edges with 3 PowderPuffs Inks in the same manner as the flowers. Glue to card as shown. Make 7 loop bow with Silk Ribbon and Bow-Easy. Add to card with glue dots and add extra flower to center with glue gun. Add adhesive pearls. Dot with White Opal Liquid Pearls as desired. Spray with Shimmer Spritz for extra sparkle.
