A Pocket Card College Graduation Announcement for UT

Pocket Graduation Card UT Austin Rather than purchase the expensive pack of way-too-many graduation announcements from the university (and because I am a stamper!) I decided to make my own for my son's college graduation.  I almost forgot about it so it was a last minute deal.  Somehow I was inspired to do a pocket card style using the "Great Grads" stamp set.  Rather than use the G in the stamp set in the center of the graduation medallion, I chose to emboss the UT with copper embossing powder and punch it out to put on the medallion.  I also used some of the designer paper I had previously purchased at the University Coop in a UT scrapbooking pack.  I also wanted it to coordinate with my graduation card for him.  I hope this will inspire you to add your personal touch to your own events by making your own announcements, invitations, etc.  Supplies and ideas are easy to get….just contact me!

    Thanks, Audrey! I should have one graduating this May….I’ll have to think up an original idea for his graduation announcement! Be sure you go to the evening ceremony with the fireworks. It’s hot, crowded, but great.

    Thanks, Sylvia! A lot of people have liked this pocket card idea. It’s really very simple. Just cut your 8.5 x 11 card stock in half longways…so
    4 1/4″ x 11. Score at 5 1/2″. For a flap, score at 1 1/4″. Fold on the score lines to make the pocket and the flap. Round the corners if you want. Use a strong adhesive inside on the sides of the pocket, like Sticky Strip. Decorate however you wish. For the insert, cut a piece of cardstock 3 1/4″ x 5″. Decorate that how you like or even add a layer to it 3″ x 4 3/4″ for your invitation or message. If you have any more questions, just ask.
