This card was made for my husbands boss as it was going to be my husbands last day of interning . Graduation is in two weeks! Yes I am counting! This card was so much fun to make. This was a fun color combo to use. I used my new cuttlebug embossing plate "birds and swirls" that I ordered online because you can't find it in any store yet. I embossed it on blue cardstock and than sanded it to add extra detail. I used the "Always" stamp set from stampin up (bird and plants) and the" Lots of thoughts" set from stampin up (many thanks).

It's done. Finnally! This has probably been the most exciting and tedious project I have done so far! Exciting because my husband is graduating from pharmacy school. Yea! Tedious because I had to make 45 of these announcements! Now for the details. The white cardstock measurement is 5"x11" scored at 3" and than at 8" The blue inside mat measures 5"x9" and is scored at 4" The inside mat with the info is 4 1/4" X 4 1/4" The seal with the school logo on it was printed on vellum and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Very cool technique! The tie on the outside of the announcement was also embossed and I used the linen backround stamp from stampin up (hard to see the details on this picture). The pocket measures 1 3/4"x 2 1/4" scored each edge at 1/4".
