If I were you I would head over to JoAnnes or Micheals and buy some nice cardstock, some photo corners, a graduation theme stamp, and a "time/date/event" stamp. Then head over to staples, and buy a box of invitation envelopes from them (item # below). It will probably end up costing you $40 or so dollars for everything but you can make as many invites as you need.
Instructions: Take your piece of cardstock and cut in half width wise... you should end up with two pieces of paper, 8.5" by 5.5". Folding that in half will give you a nice sized card of 5.5" x 4.25" which fits perfectly in 4 3/8" x 5 3/4" greeting envelopes from Staples (item #909244)

Stamp the front with the "graduation" theme stamp of your choice, then stamp the inside with the "time/date/place" stamp. You can get gold, or silver stamp pads and "layer" the gold underneath and the black on top, or use the schools colors, for an even cuter affect. On the backside of the front flap of your card, place two photo corners (sold in packs of 100 or more usually, and in lots of different colors. Usually by the adhesives.. and stick her prom photo in there. should look something like this:
