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.

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. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Great file Angela. Thanks for the share. Did you create it all by hand or did you trace some parts? I am curious as to how people create files. Thanks.
Cheers, Kim  :D

Hi Kim

I think this design was a part trace, which I then copied and pasted the corners to make a frame; and then did some increasing and decreasing of the design to gets the mats as well......Some good designs can come from dingbat fonts.....

Hi Angela

Thanks for the reply, I hope to find time to learn more about inkscape and start trying to make files myself. It's good to know how people go about design.

Lovely frames.  I'm a newbie here and am wondering what the A5 and A6 in the tile refers to.  Is it size?
Thank you for any info you can share.  I have so much to learn.

Hi and welcome,

A5 and A6 are common sizes used by card makers.

A5 is half the size of A4 and is the basic size of a lot of cards. If you have one piece of A4 paper you can cut out two cards.

A6 is half the size of A5 and tends to be the size used for just the card front.
