Congratulations on Your Engagement

Hi friends!  I have a very special card to share today.  My niece Stephanie got engaged over the Columbus Day weekend.  Her now fiancé, Chris, proposed to her at the top of a ski hill in a popular ski resort just outside of Buffalo, NY.  They rode the chairlift up and when they got up there, he said that this would be a great place for a wedding or an engagement.  It was so beautiful in the fall with all the beautiful leaves changing.  He then got down on his knee and proposed.  He's such a sweet guy and perfect for Stephanie.
Today we are celebrating their engagement with a dinner at Stephanie's mom's house.  I bought them a pretty Kate Spade frame to house their engagement or wedding photo.  I of course had to make a card.  Stephanie wants to get married next fall and wants royal blue as her theme color.  So I thought I'd use some blue foil to create this card.  I ordered the foil and this stamp set from SSS and it just arrived yesterday!  I had to stamp it on cardstock and take it to Office Max to have them copy it on  their laser printer (I don't have one).  Then I was able to foil it.  It's difficult here to see the shine of the foil.

You can see the shine of the foil in this photo.  I just added more shimmer with sequins and a silver heart.  I matted the main panel on navy cardstock, and that's mounted on fun foam for some dimension.

I also stamped the envelope with the same flourish and a sentiment that says "Mr. & Mrs. to be".
Here's a great photo of Stephanie and Chris.  They usually take goofy photos together (I'm worried about the wedding photos!  LOL!).  I wanted to print one of the goofy photos and put it in the frame, but I didn't think of it before the store I bought the frame from wrapped it!
Thanks for stopping by today!

I don't really understand the foiling process, Lisa, but I'm glad you figured it out and got a pic that beautifully reflects the WOW factor of it!:) Congrats to the cute new couple!
