DAD CARD - SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND 7

I was supposed to release this download on Bank Holiday Monday but got a bit distracted.... sorry x

It's based on a Silhouette File Diana Perry designed featuring a selection of Tools that you can print and cut.  I've also added in a card base so you've got
everything you need to die cut a fab card :)

If you print off the card base, score and fold the front half over so as it just touches the welded letters you can stick the letters on to the front of the card so as they marry up when the card is closed (I hope that makes sense lol )

The way I created it was I took the letters D, A, D and lay them alongside a rectangle.  When I was happy I created an internal offset for each letter and moved those out of the work area.  Then I welded the letters to the right hand side of the rectangle.  I'd run out of ink so couldn't print and cut so used some of the tools cutting part in silver mirri and the other part in black.

Thank you Diana

  2. Hi Hayley
    I have the designer edition of the software. I am trying to draw a shape and apply one of the knife cuts to the outline, e.g. scallop a circle. Not having much luck. Is this possible at all.
    Thanks

  3. I think the knives will only disect a shape but I will investigate.

    To get a scalloped circle I would probably take one of the fee designs and delete some areas so as you end up with the scallop circle

    1. That's strange??? I have to refresh the link after 100 downloads but it's showing that less than 100 have been downloaded? Anyway, I've refreshed the link so you should be ok now.

      I don't put limitations on the downloads so please let me know if you have any problems, it could just be that the link needs refreshing.
