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.

Butterfly with Raised Wings Card
« on: July 11, 2011, 06:26:28 AM »
I have already created two videos that show some of the steps and thought it may be useful for new Inkscape users to see how different tutorials can be combined to create projects. I have used a butterfly but I am sure the creative members can come up with a lot more ideas. Some suggestions are birds, bees and dragonflies.

The video and instructions to separate the butterfly into two sections can be found here http://www.inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?topic=527.0

Here is another card that is very similar. The card is made using the same steps as shown above except for the part about the dashed line. To create this project graduated circles are added to the bezier path. Watch the video to see how to add a set of graduated circles to the path line.

I have added the SVG file if anyone would like to have a copy. The file is not to be shared on any other website.

Are you volunteering?  :lol:

Okay, you are off the hook and I did change the scroll butterfly. The body was a bit tricky with all those cut out pieces.
