    This is going to be my first real project using SCAL! Thank you so much for sharing – and for the tutorial…I know I’ll learn a lot making these cards! (I hope this will work with the baby bug!)

    Thank you so much for the tutorial showing the w dimensions and the free files too. I’ve created cards in SCAL before, but I didn’t have an envelope. From now on, I will use your card and envelope templates. It was very easy to follow along and the voice is very soothing.

    Thanks so much for all the kind words! It’s our pleasure – this was really fun for us to put together!

    Donna, does the Baby Bug use the 6″ x 12″ mat? If so, you can certainly do this project with it (just not the envelope).

    Lora, so sorry to hear about your shoulder – omgoodness! Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Thanks for these free svg images. This will be my first time trying out my Cricut with the software sure cuts a lot.

    Thanks so much for the great tutorial. I find I don’t use my Cricut unless I can follow something like this. I am not creative enough to figure it all out myself but I feel and my cards look like I am a real pro. I hope you continue to design cards for all season and post more tutorials. I wish that you would completely show how to score the envelope. My card looks great but I don’t know how to score the envelope and it looks bad. Thanks so much I well check this site often.

    Thanks so much for the svg file. I made the card and it so precious I can’t decide if I want to send it or keep it.
