Graduation Announcements - Pocket Cards

These Graduation Announcements are for a sweetheart who just completed her Master's Program. She looked at the announcements offered in the graduation package and knew they just weren't her style. So we stamped these pocket cards for her to announce her graduation.

The Pocket Style card is perfect for an invitation or announcement, with the ribbon tab pull card. And the Pockets are easy to create with the Simply Scored tool and Paper Cutter from Stampin' Up!

To make these cards I scored an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of Night of Navy cardstock in half at 5 1/2".  Then I cut cardstock sheet in half, vertically, to 4 1/4" x 11". Each of these pieces are cut on the diagonal from one corner to the opposite corner of the scored center fold. Fold on the score lines. Decorate each diagonal piece and then adhere the backs together and the bottom edges to create the pocket.

For these Pocket Cards I used pages from a book of poetry of John Greenleaf Whittier. For the insert, the announcement wording is printed on Naturals Ivory cardstock and matted onto the Soft Suede mat. A tab of Basic Black Satin Ribbon coordinates with the Black Heat Embossed 2012 medallion.
