For my card, I decided to adapt it to a 6" square card. Mostly because I wanted to use paper from my KaiserCraft Gypsy Sisters Collection 6" paper pad. I love these rich and elegant papers.
Using a mix of papers from the collection, I created the front of the card. The panel behind the oval die cut had teal distressing around the edges of the 6" square paper but because I had to trim it down, there was not any left on two of the sides. So I simply airbrushed some B06 around those sides to make it match. I stamped this gorgeous Lovely Roses image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen paper.
Roses - R81, R85
Leaves - YG45, Y17, YG41, R85
Shadow - E51
I used my Nellie Snellen Oval Multi Frame die to create the teal oval. For the patterned paper panel behind the image, I traced the next smaller die from this set and hand trimmed it to fit. I popped the image up using Foam Dots. I added some gold pearl accents using my Viva Decor Pearl pen.
For the inside of my card, I trimmed another sheet of DP from the collection. Also included in this paper pack are borders and die cut panels suitable for adding sentiments. I added a piece of border across the top and then used one of the die cuts adding this great sentiment, "Hope your day is full of smiles!"

I was asked the dimensions for making a 6" square Center Step card. I make my base 5 7/8" x 11 3/4" for a 5 7/8" square card, it will fit perfectly in a 6" square envelope. So here is the template to create this card. You can vary the size of the side panels, I made mine 1" to accommodate the die cut oval.
