 My oldest niece just celebrated her Catholic Confirmation this last weekend. I was working on some other crafting projects when it dawned on me that I could make her a card rather than buy her one. 
This is the front of the card:

I originally considered using my Inspired Heart cartridge, but the images on it were more complicated than I wanted. So I used my Gypsy to search for crosses and found a really Old World style cross on my Easter 2010 cartridge. 
The inside of the card:

For the inside, I found a confirmation prayer and printed it on white paper. I backed in black and put a personal note on the other side. 
My niece thought it was pretty and it definitely impressed her grandparents. In the end, I was proud to put my time and love into it for her on a special day.
