The front of the card has layers of white, teal, and glitter. I used two different corner border punches, along with a Spellbinder Die and an embossing folder. I used "Tear-ific Tape" to add added the new Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter to the edges with the heart border.
Since they are both musicians, it was very important to incorporate something musical. I heat embossed the Music Background with Silver Pearl Embossing Powder on a white square that shows through the Clear Embossable Acetate of the picture frame created with a Spellbinder Die and layers of white and teal. It is popped up with foam tape on only three sides, leaving the top open so their engagement picture can be slid in behind the acetate. The Congratulation from the Congratulations Trio was heat embossed with Poolside Embossing Powder on the front of the acetate.
I created a large bow with some lovely decorative sheer ribbon and added it to the top left corner, along with some handmade roses. I sponged the two smaller roses with a little pink ink and added glitter to all of the flowers, using Brushable Glue.
For the inside of the card I added more punched layers. I embossed the Music Background in Silver Pearl again, but also added the Solid Monarch in a few places. I added teal cardstock covered with the same ribbon across the center. The hearts are cut with Spellbinder dies and their names are written with a Penboss Marker and embossed with Poolside EP. The final touch was to add tiny pink pearls to the punched border on both the front and the inside.
Here is the final card. I hope this will be a keepsake for them of this exciting time in their lives.
