Here's my Card using the Graceful Concertina Die Set. I am so thrilled to have got a chance to create something using this set. It's super dainty and elegant!

This one did take me quite some time to put together because of the details in it. It's been a while since I created such an elaborate multi-fold card and it was super fun to work on it! To begin with, I die cut the outer part of the concertina from Cream Heavy Weight Cardstock. I die cut it several times since I planned to make a three-fold card. To highlight the gorgeous design, I decided to use Vellum to add between the cream die cuts. I used Papericious' Vellum Paper which is quite sturdy and was perfect for die cutting. I die cut the concertina dies twice from Cream Cardstock and once from Vellum Cardstock for each layer of the card. I used the tabs given on the side of each die cut to intersect them together to create a three-layer card.

For the layer in the centre of the card, I die cut the intricate die included in the Graceful Concertina set from a Vintage Patterned Paper. I adhered this to the centre of the concertina to create a backdrop for the couple which I included in the front of the panel. The couple die cut is from a previous collection by Becca, and is called the Happily Ever After Etched Dies. I die cut it from White Cardstock and Gold Mirror Cardstock and layered them one on top of the other,  so that I could achieve some depth and dimension. The mini bouquet in the bride's hand was made using the flower dies from the Layered Friends Forever Cafe Scene Etched Dies. I clustered them together to create a small bouquet. I also added some tulle and ribbon to it for added interest.

The sentiment is a die from the Happily Ever After Etched Die Set. I die cut it from Gold Mirror Cardstock and popped it on my card panel using dimensional foam tape. The flowers are all made using the flower dies from the Cinch and Go IV Etched Dies. I die cut them from White Cardstock and coloured them using the Tea Party Mini Cube Set. I embossed the centres and added pollens to it to give them more dimension. The leaves are also cut using the dies included in the Cinch and Go IV Etched Dies and were coloured using the Bamboo Crisp Dye Ink. 

I added these small flower clusters on all my card panels to create the look of Wedding Arches, which are so beautiful and delicate! I assembled it together by adhering the tabs on the sides of the cards and my card was complete!
