Triple fold wedding card

This is my attempt at making a card that I simply adored from Pinterest
I recreated this card for an upcoming wedding.
The card front is made up of two dies.  The cathedral background die is from Memory  Box. The Floral Oval die is from Spellbinders and the Bride and Groom stamp is from Michaels. I used a ribbon belly band to secure the inside bulk of the card.
A smaller floral oval die was used to hold the ribbon belly band in place at the back of the card.
The sentiment stamp is from Close To My Heart.
This is the inside of the card where each scalloped side will hold a His and Hers Money gift.  The flowers used are silk with the plastic forms removed. (the plastic retains the petal shape of silk flower).  I always use Beacons 3in1 glue for silk flowers, I find it works best.  The floral card stock was purchased from JoAnn Fabrics.  The rectangle dies and the floral oval dies are both from Spellbinders.  I edged the rectangles using a CTMH Gypsy Mauve ink pad and sponge applicator. The butterflies are made from Martha Stewart punches.  I ink sponged the pastel mauve (Small) butterfly wings with Gypsy (top wings) and Blush (bottom wings) ink pads from Close To My Heart.  
I added some Recollection flourish bling purchased from Michaels
The base construction of a similar card looks like this using 2  - 4 1/4 X 11" (A2) size cards folded at 5 1/2 and Scalloped to form the two sides on  the inside of the card.  The join in the middle was made by scoring a 1/4" on both A2 cards (non scalloped edge) and adhering them together using score tape for maximum hold.  The front and back panels of the card (Purple card stock) measured 5" X 6 1/2" 
This is a photo of the back of the card.  The card will be an accordion fold card.  This particular card should not need a belly band because the inside isn't overlaid with card stock making the bulk of the wedding card above 
I should mention the blessing used is a freebie found on a wedding poems/prayer website.  It was printed on card stock by placing the card stock in my printer and then cut using the rectangle die.  To save bulk I cut the purple card stock as an outline and adhered it to the back of the floral card stock.
