Religious Baby Gift

Lately I've been experimenting with some graphic designs and printables.  My friend's adorable daughter celebrated her baptism yesterday, so I decided to make her a special gift to commemorate the occasion. 

I used a calligraphy-like font to write Lucy's complete name.  Then I flipped and made mirror image copies of the text.  This made the horizontal part of the cross shape.  The words "God's Precious Gift" form the vertical part of the cross.

After printing the design on gorgeous textured paper, I placed it in a pre-matted frame.  I'm really happy with the results and plan to do something similar for future gifts.  There are so many possibilities for this design and theme.  A calligraphy cross would be a cherished gift to celebrate a wedding, birth, First Communion, or Confirmation.  The words can also be connected to form other shapes, too. 

Here's what the file looks like in a JPEG format.  It printed a little bit lighter on the textured printer and looks like it was done by hand

What other shapes or gifts do would you like to see using this design?
