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.

Shaped Card Topper
« on: June 12, 2011, 10:00:29 AM »
In this pictorial I will show how easy it is to use designs you already own and add them to a card front to create unique shaped card.
My example used a paper pieced file but you don't have too and any outline style design such as a dingbat would work the same.

How did you get the outline for the rose rose font.  I have tried everything and I still can't figure it out.  Please help

Hi, If my memory serves me correctly, I selected the rose I wished to change.
I then increased the width of the stroke to suit the project.
I then applied Path>Stroke to Path.

Applying Stroke to Path is the step that ensure the design cuts as it appears on your computer screen.
