I wish everyone a Blessed Day- celebrating with your loved ones or celebrating in Memory of loved ones.
I have been slowly learning how to use SVG files on the Make the Cut program- it is software that works with my electronic cutting machine to cut out any SVG file.
McMahon Five Designs. I have some pictures below (at the end of the post) for those that are interested is seeing how the MTC works.
I love the challenge of the Friday Blogger's Challenge- come play with us! List Mom LISA's Blog is HERE. You can join in by linking below.
OK- if you are interested in seeing how this works, read on.......
OK- for a look-see for how the Make the Cut works:
After I purchase and save the SVG file I put it into a file (just like a digital image). Unlike a digital image you cannot see a preview of the file when you click on it- so name it appropriately.
Open the Make the Cut software and import SVG- click on the file and the SVG shows up on a mat on the screen.
I click on the above group of images together and I see red arrows at the corners- just like a digi resizing- I just move one of the cornersout to the size I want my SVG to be (the mat is in inches and it looks just like the mat on my cutting machine).
Next, I take my cursor and move one of the layers from the "DAD" over to the right as seen below.
I drag a box around the "DAD" letters and hit plus and it makes the letters a separate layer.
I continue with all of the shapes- there are 5 total:
Now- notice the shapes all have a plus sign in the centers- so I can put Dad back over the background and make sure they are lined up perfectly. (I added more pictures below- so all of the shapes are not on their own layers anymore....)
Viola- you have cut out your SVG.
On my card, I took this shape layer and added ~ 1/4 of an inch to put under the cut DAD layers and the brown card stock- that is the far back cream layer. The keys at the top of my card are a seperate SVG - I used only three of the keys and they are smaller than an inch each. I added Spica glitter pen to them for some sparkle.
My daughter did not like this card- but my husband likes it alot- go figure.
Thanks for stopping by!
