Quick & Easy Envelope Cards

It's finally the end of the school year for me! Yaaaayyyy!!! I adapted the traditional envelope album into Retirement Cards for the three teachers leaving our school this year. I needed something that included my wishes for them, but also a handful of pictures from their time at our school. These use two envelopes leaving me with two pockets - one to hide a booklet of photos and the other to hide my journalling. I apologize for all the retired elements in these samples, but I thought it was a good time to use my stash!
I covered the picture on the inside of the first one, but you still get the idea. This one uses some of the brand new Designer Series Paper and In Color line.
The top pocket contains my journalling and the bottom contains a pull out accordion fold booklet with more pictures.
The second and third cards have the same cover (which I CASED from something I saw on Splitcoaststampers, but can't remember where). I kept these very simple - mostly because I'm not very good at making manly cards!

Again, the same pull-out journalling and booklet of pictures. This one is for the retiring Principal, so I couldn't resist using the photo I found of him on the school roof taken not long after the school was built.

This one now contains a photo on the brown photo mat. I didn't have a lot of pictures of this teacher, so I kept it really simple and included an extra pull-out of simple journalling instead of the photo books.
