Note: I am so sorry I can't seem to make the video smaller on You Tube.

I made a short video to accompany these photos of a special occasion on the life of my son. He has achieved so much on his 17 years old of age. This seminar/classes of Emerging Leaders was provided by Penn State University to some students from different schools in the vicinity. My son was chosen by his school to attend and participate in this great event and to say Thank You we are sending this beautiful card to them.
The American Crafts white card base was cut at 7x11 inches and scored at 4.25 inches.
The DCWV white core blue embossed cardstock was cut at 4x 4.25 inches and embossed with the Thank You cuttlebug folder and sanded to achieve the distressed technique I wanted.
The white strip was punched with a Fiskars paper punch called Sunburst and the measurements are 4.5x1.5 inches. The next piece of white cardstock where you will write your sentiment was cut at 6x3.5 inches.
The back blue cardstock is 6.5x4.25 inches and the leftover embossed strip 4.25x1 inch.
Any questions? remember to post on the
