This beauty is intended for my grandson and his fiancee! They had an idyllic and romantic engagement in Blue Ridge. They live in Cincinnati, came to Blue Ridge for a long weekend and made reservations to ride the ‘scenic train’. During the trip family members were standing along the tracks at a wide place along the way with signs that read “Katie, will you marry me?” He had contacted the train engineer and the conductor and arranged for the train crew to slow train down and direct everyone’s attention to that side of the tracks. My grandson got on his knees and had the ring ready. She was speechless!!! But she said YES! All the people in that car on the train clapped and congratulated them. They have known each other for several years and have been dating for about a year.
I cased this from Marcy Denning’s http://www.stampinwithmarcy.com stunning card. The only things I changed were the embossing in the background (this is not a Stampin’ Up! folder), and the sentiment. When I put the card together there was nothing I would change!
The colors are Blusing Bride and Crumb Cake. My new two most favorite colors. I have in mind to make a card out of these colors for my granddaughter’s seventh birthday. They are of course ballet colors! Love, love, love their combination.
Using Crumb Cake for the back ground I adhered a layer of Blushing Bride topped by an embossed layer of Crumb Cake. Then layering Blushing Bride with Love Blossoms DSP (Paper Stack-Occasions Catalog) and adhering to front of card. Next layer set is Blushing Bride layered with Whisper White. Heart is from Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set stamped in Crumb Cake. The small hearts are die cut using Blushing Bride and the small heart from the Blooming’ Heart Thinlets set. Adhere with glue dots and place pearls for centers on all flowers. The sentiment is from the Cuddles and Kisses Stamp Set (retired).
The inside is layered Blushing Bride with Whisper White and hearts punched out of two corners. I haven’t decided on an envelope yet but it will be Crumb Cake for sure!
