Converting a swing or flip card
« on: August 31, 2012, 11:43:30 AM »
I am trying to create a flip or swing card, depending on what you want to all it.  What I have done already is not like the standard one I have...I want to create a scalloped circle, oval, scalloped square as a part of the piece...not one where you have to glue two pieces to the 'bar' in the center...

Hope I am making myself clear with this...

HI there

Is this what you need - I haven't included the dashed lines for the folds *swing card.svg

Hope it works for you

sorry just reread the post and completely missed the scallop part - just off out for dinner - will get something together in the morning if you are still stuck

good luck  :)

I wonder if I took that file and scalloped around the edges, if it would work....

I'm trying to create where it's all one piece like the one you sent....and you just fold it and comes out like the standard swing card.

Hello again

Had some time this morning to play - here is an inkscape file which will cut in signcut or scal, there are four layers
1. Instructions
2. Scallop topper
3. Scallop Swing file
3. Circle Swing file

Please use Shift + CTRL + L to open the layers palette and ensure that only the layer you want to cut is visible (eye open)

Hope this helps your project

best wishes
