The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

Santa holiday card
« on: November 08, 2011, 01:45:19 PM »
OK I'm just showing off what can be done with a huge amount of time and an inquiring mind.  I just kept asking myself "what if.... I used hatch, filter/glow/inner glow/ and then on and on until I got this humongous file (1.1mb) that almost brought my computer to its wobbly knees!

I can work on separating the elements into separate files and see if I can post that way for those of you who might want to give it a go.

I envision printing the santa w/ bag, the happy holiday text, and the background paper.  Then cutting around each one with the outline layer as a guide.  I most probably will print the images with the outline and use scissors to cut along the outline.  Messing with print/cut with my expression and SCAL2 is too squirrly to mess up after using all the ink it will take to print. :lol: even tho I think it would be more impressive if there was the dimension you'd get with the individual elements attached to the background.  Or I will just send the jpg off to a photo center to print me a bunch, they will be flatter but I'll be done quicker.  I'll let you know if and when I get to it with Thanksgiving to get done first.


I hope this inspires you and  brings a smile to your day.  I like it.

We can discuss the how if you like, assuming I can remember.

Your card looks awesome. Would you like my address to add my to your Christmas card list, lol. Santa looks awesome. The card certainly added a smile to my day.

Spare time, what's that? I promise to not complain I am bored if I could only have one day to play with Inkscape uninterrupted and actually create a new file.
