Wedding Accents

Here is a scrapbook page I designed for the first page of our wedding album. I already created most of the inside pages of the album but could never figure out what I wanted to do for the first page.

After I saw the Timeless Heritage dies by Spellbinders, I knew what I wanted to do. Simple...but the elegant accents keep the picture the focal point.
I tried to make the dies LOOK like real copper pieces. I can create a tutorial on how I did this if there is interest.

Here is a close up of the dies. I also used Hardware Buckles (Spellbinders) dies to create the little accents on the side. The photo and frame are cut using Spellbinders Curved Rectangle Mega Nestabilities.
Gotta run--we are hosting a Superbowl party here tonight! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

I would LOVE to see a tutorial on how to make those vintage copper accents -- they are beautiful! You must have a "winner" of a wedding album if that is any indication!
