Tilda and Edwin Engagement Congratulations Card

Good morning everyone. Today's post is a card I made specially for one of my co-workers who recently engaged. Congratulations to Chantelle & Asher!!! Therefore, this card is to congratulate her from our office. Because this is not a wedding card, so instead of picking a wedding image, I picked this Loving Bridal Couple and rather than using wedding colors, I picked sort of causal colors. You can purchase this stamp from Magnolia-licious Store.

Here is the finished card

I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Midweek Magnolias Week #9 - May Flowers
CropStop Challenge #70 - Emboss It
Little Miss Muffet Challenge #34 - May Flowers
Paper Play Challenge 12 Week 8 - Use your stamps with pin and pearls
Little Red Wagon Challenge #131 - Stitch It Up
My Mum's Craft Challenge #55 - Embossing
Crazy Amigo Challenge - Flowers
Creative Card Crew Challenge #9 - Ribbon
Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge #23 - Ribbon or twine
Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge - Stitching
Totally Tilda Challenge #45 - Stitching
Paper Sundaes Challenge #118 - Ribbon and Pearls

Closer view on this colored Loving Bridal Couple image

Closer view to show you the flower and pins embellishments plus a 'love' charm. I actually dyed this binding ribbon a very very light touch of pink so it doesn't look as pure white.

View of the inside

Because this card is going to sign by quite a few people, so I added an insert sheet and used some Magnolia flower stamps to stamp on the cover page of this signing insert sheet.

Closer view of this page when it inserted inside.

Flat view to show you the dimension of this card. As you can see this card is quite thick, so I custom made a simple envelope box to put this card inside.

Here is a quick and simple envelope box for this thick card.

Thank you so much for your visit today and hope to share with you another project soon :o)
