Many Years ago I made a set of lattice crafting fonts
for fold and tuck lattice cards (also known as many other names )
Back then I was working with scal and the cuts needed to be a closed
path, so I found a fun way to make life easy for making lattice cards. Now there are many cutters out there in the world (including the ZING) that are able to cut SINGLE PATH lines. So I thought it was time to make
Last week I mentioned that I have been watching the
back editions of MTC weekly webinars.
After posting that post last week I sat down to watch another and WOW was I surprised when Julie mentioned lattice fonts and then Bryan said my name , talking about the lattice fonts I had designed back in 2008. Back then I was working with scal and the cuts needed to be a closed path, so I found a fun way to make life easy for making lattice cards (also known as many other names)
In the webinar Bryan mentioned that someone should ask me to do "Open path fonts " with them. So what did I do last Tuesday afternoon? I got out my old file and cleaned them all up making them much neater and only single lines. Then the task was to find somewhere to convert to OPF, which with all the looking I could not find anywhere. I asked for help from Bryan and he told me what to do. NOW I have a set of fonts that are single lines "Open path fonts" that make the cut supports and "Some" cutters can use .
I plan to share these fonts with anyone whould will want them, but I thought I would make a blog lesson on how to use them first (Hopefully tomorrow they will be ready for you all ).
In the mean time I do have something to share with you all. NINE premade make the cut patterns ready for cutting and folding . Here are a few of them and the cards I made them into, I used Alota Rubber stamps to finish my cards. (click on card pattern links to download eg..CARD Pattern SBRB00??.mtc)
Over the past couple of days I have been making the spirals putting my own spin on them (HERE and HERE ) and I had many requests for how I did them so here is a lesson WITH A starter spiral to get you started. GET the starter FROM HERE (Begin Spiral.mtc) .
***This works on cutters that support open path cuts (eg Zing).
