Tulip Double Bendy Engagement Card

This card was created for a very special occasion: my daughter's engagement! Her boyfriend invited my husband and me to Florida to be there the day he proposed (they were there on vacation), and so I set about making a special card to bring with me to give her the night of the proposal. I guess you can tell I was confident she would say yes😄! She did, and we had a wonderful weekend celebrating together!

This card design comes from Lisa Curcio's measurements and instructions found here: How to Make a 3D Fun Fold Window Card That Bends! - Lisa's Stamp Studio ( I modified the card a little but kept the base the same as Lisa's instructions. I chose some pretty floral card stock to decorate the base and set about cutting all the pieces for the base. Then I cut the "bendy" pieces for the front and back and die cut a window out of them. I trimmed the inner die cut from the piece that came out when I made the windows, and I stamped tulips from Hero Arts Florals Tulips stamp set onto the die cuts and colored them with Ohuhu Honolulu alcohol markers. I stamped "Congratulations" from the Hero Arts Florals Magnolia set and then stamped "on your engagement" from Hero Arts Congrats stamp and die set. I used the "Congrats" die from that same set to make a gold die cut for the back side of the card. I added a yellow gauze bow to the top of the front side of the card. Then I added some pale gold Nuvo dots to the panel with the tulip on the back of the card, added the "Love never fails" sentiment, and finished it off with a gold die cut butterfly.
