The nonlinear wave properties of an artificial multiferroic medium consisting of a ferroelectric layer and a ferromagnetic layer have been studied. The simultaneous effect of wave nonlinearities of both layers on the formation and propagation of envelope solitons has been analyzed. It has been shown that bright envelope solitons of electromagnetic spin waves can appear in such a medium owing to the wave nonlinearity of ferroelectric layer. In order to confirm the theoretical results, the coefficients of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation have been calculated and this equation has been solved numerically.
