Heartfelt-Banded Double Fold Out

Good morning!
Today I have a very special wedding card to share.
The papers and images in this wedding collection makes any wedding card
Gorgeous and special.
There are special messages and tags at each end where you can write your heartfelt congratulations or good advice for the new couple.
Look at that sparkle from the Crystal Clear glitter.

The pink ribbon has sparkle as well.
The belly band really adds to the total look and holds the card together until ready to open.

Cover with medium pink designer paper 1 3/8" and long enough to go around then add ribbon to center all the way around.  Cut a strip of white wide enough to cover center glued piece and border cut both sides.  Punch a heart for the center.  Stamp, die cut and color small heart wreath and wedding rings from Classic Wedding Roses.  Cut large ring at about the center and add to wreath (make sure cut is covered by wreath vine), glue to band just in a few places so that it keeps it's form.  Add Stickles to diamonds.  The band keeps the card closed nicely and adds a decorative punch for interest to the closed card.
