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!
