A long hello svg

I was looking for a good "hello" on my carts this weekend and could not find a single one (on 14 carts!) so I thought I'd just make one.   Of course if you have SCAL, you could just weld any ol' font, but I wanted one that had a long front and tail to go across a card. This one cut at 1 inch will span across the front of a standard A2 card.  File is below.  Have a great day!


On an unrelated note....look at this cute little boy bringing a flower to his mommy yesterday...we need to mow, but its nice that they have a pluthera of flowers to pick for me....I think this might need a scrap page.

I didn't see any other to ask you a question. When you make the Daisy flowers and put it on a card; what do you use for an envelope? Have you make some sort of a box/envelope for it so the flower doesn't get crushed in the envelope/mail?

Amy, the original font was just a freebie, sorry, not sure which I used, but it was much thiner, didn't connect well and didn't have the tails, those were added in photoshop using brushes and a pen tool, then the entire image was coverted to an svg in inkscape.

Mary, I do have a box envelope, but I mailed one just in a regular envelope across town to a friend and it did not squish. It did require extra postage though-there are stamps you can buy for hand sorted, same as you would for a card with ribbon on it. Hope that helps, I actually have an updated daisy so I will try and get the card, new file, and the box on my site this weekend. Hope that helps!
