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.

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.
