The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

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.
