Watch Out Orlando Graduation Card

I am very, very grateful to the bloggers that I follow lately!  I've been in one of those creative slumps and I can't seem to come up with anything that I like on my own.  Thank goodness this doesn't happen to everybody at the same time. I've been lucky enough to find great cards that I could use as a springboards and this is an example of another one!  I needed a graduation card for a friend who is finishing up nail tech school and since I know she will take Orlando by storm, Wanda Guess' card was just perfect for the event!  You can see Wanda's inspiration card here. Since I had the Taylored Expressions Instant Photo Frame Die I was set to go. It is a favorite because you can put so many things into the opening to make snapshots that are the perfect size for a card front!
  I used the "Cracked" font on my computer to make all of the wording for this card.  To center the words on the photo frame, I printed them out on white card stock.  Then I cut the frame out of vellum.  I placed the vellum frame over the words to center them and marked the 4 corners so I could place the die just where I needed it to be and taped it in place.  Ran it though the Big Shot and then used it in my card :)

I had a few of the paper dolls left when I cut the strip to size so I used them to decorate the inside of the card...

Dies:  Taylored Expressions Instant Photo Frames, My Favorite Things Skyline Border, Cloud Trio & Paper Doll Girl Border and Memory Box Corner Bow Die
Miscellaneous: Dylusions Ink Spray - London Blue, vellum
