Some masculine cards

Stampin' Up! has some fabulous masculine stamp sets in the 2011 Summer Mini Catalog - Best Dad Ever and The Open Sea

Something special for a nurse!

My niece graduated Magna Cum Laude from West Virginia University School of nursing in May 2010.  Despite all that, it takes time to get the license, and then find a job. I think it was in February, she finally found a job in nursing and had to go through some training to be an OR nurse.  Finally she is where she wants to be so I made this for her in honor of her achievement.

All supplies are from Stampin' Up!
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Real Red
 Accessories: wide striped grosgrain ribbon - Real Red, Designer Series Paper - Celebrations

I found a template on the internet to make the envelopes from the Designer Series Paper.

I purchased the tutorial from Lynn Pratt at stampndesign so I can't take credit for the design itself.
