Today was the Christening of a very good friend's baby son, and she asked me to make a card for her & her partner to give their son. This is the design she chose. The colours do not show as true here, but they are beige & gold to match the outfit he wore today.
I designed the card using SCAL, and used my Cricut to cut it out. I liked the way the "i" looks a little like a candle in this font, which I think is especially symbolic for a Christening. I am not happy with the size of the "i"s & "n"s, & don't know what happened there, but it's still early days for me with learning how to use SCAL
Close ups of the Cross & Candle I used on the front of the card.
My friend & her partner were really pleased with the card, & then my friend wrote a beautiful poem for the inside of the card.

We had a wonderful day with them, & their families.

Wishing you a lifetime of  love, health & happiness Toby xx

Tfl, & for any comments you may care to make

It took some (well, a fair bit really) of playing about & experimenting to do it, but I know that it'll get easier the more I do with it.
I am also very grateful to Sueplayingwithpaper from DC who guided me through the basics. I really must have a look at some of the online tutorials, that will be a huge help too I'm sure
