Jesus Loves Me

Someone bought something like this for my son when he was born and I've seen them at gift shops. They are usually done in actual handwriting but mine is horrible so I thought I'd try making it in SBC+. I think it turned out pretty cute! I created half of the cross with the "custom shape using straight lines", then I copy/pasted-flipped-grouped-flattened. The hard part was the text path, I've only played around with it once before and got frustrated. But, this time I zoomed in and clicked all the way around the cross, then zoomed even closer to edit my path and make sure all lines were straight. Then, I had to tinker around with the text to make the spacing look right. I made a frame to go around by cutting a rectangle out of a rectangle, using the same paper as the cross but gave it some texture/amplification and...voila! I think it's adorable! I'm going to print it as an 8x10 matte print and on cardstock at home to see which I like better, frame it and give it to my great nephew.
