Accucut and Ella's Design

Another accucut card today - I really have been trying to think of new ways to use these tried and trusted wedding stationery dies. The canopy card has been my favourite card lately and so I took the idea of it to make this wedding card using accucut dies.
First off the wrap around is a foldover stationery die with A7 bellyband embossed with an embossing folder and the rose is attached to a 1 1/2 inch circle seal  - dies are NC651 NC638 S1227. I cut 2 more foldovers from patterned paper (some old Rusty Pickle) and spray glued it to the card base on both sides using 3M repositionable adhesive.

I cut an A7 card blank (trimmed a tiny bit off) and glued it inside the card wrap. This was then layered with a piece of orange card and then the A7 oval card mat - dies NC584 and DS217. I took the oval and cut a couple of millimetres around it before embossing it and layering it back inside the oval mat - so that just a rim of orange shows. I tied some brown satin ribbon around the whole card front and secured with a large pearl brad and embellished with pins and bow.
The oval is layered with a spellbinders pendant die cut from pearl paper and a layered rectangle using TB105A and a corner rounder.
The image is a pre coloured horseshoe digital image from Ella's Design - you can find it here . The stamp comes in 2 coloured versions  for those in a hurry days (like most of mine!) and 2 black and white images for you to colour. I added some glitter to the flowers and seed pearls to the horeshoe.

The bottom of the foldover forms the card base and I embellished the patterned paper with pearls and table confetti - the sentiment is a sticker and the wedding rings are gold embossed die cuts.
I've made this card for the paperplay challenge summer lovin,  Dutch Dare Card Challenge - I turned the sketch 180 degrees, Southern Girls Challenge Die Cuts, Creative Inspirations Anything Goes and The Paper Shelter 
were the challenge was "Bling it on"
Roll on the sunny days and thanks for dropping by.
