How to make your own cards USING my fonts LESSON

Firstly here is a list of patterns cards already made by me
But some people want to make there own
I have had many requests on how to make there patterns using
my lattice crafting fonts

so i thought it was about time that I did a lesson for you all .
THIS IS WITH SURE CUTS A LOT

You start by selecting a shape (this case i picked an 8 pointed star, but if you pick another pointed star you will have to work out the rotate as it will vary)
Center it where you want your pattern to be.

Now go to lattice font and chose the one you want to use (I chose F ) and adjust it to the size you want

Drag it , so it touches one of the points of the star
the copy (control c)
paste (control v), Rotate angle and type in 45 , enter , drag it so it sits at the point of the star (that easy )

paste (control v), Rotate angle and type in 90 , enter , drag it so it sits at the point of the star

paste (control v), Rotate angle and type in 135 , enter , drag it so it sits at the point of the star

paste (control v), Rotate angle and type in 180 , enter , drag it so it sits at the point of the star

paste (control v), Rotate angle and type in 225 , enter , drag it so it sits at the point of the star

paste (control v), Rotate angle and type in 270 , enter , drag it so it sits at the point of the star

AND paste (control v), Rotate angle and type in 315 , enter , drag it so it sits at the point of the star

Now what you do is take away the star in the middle , highlight and control x

Save and you are ready to cut or put square

or retangle frame around it so it cuts as a card
