Credit for this project idea comes from Patty Ann's Place on YouTube. She uses a different program though.
Did you work through Part 1? Any questions? The key take away is Text---Object to Path---Ungroup---Union---Outset. The rest is just icing.
Now, we're going to expand on these steps and make a one of a kind layered letter.
These are great to make in school colours, subtle ombre look, or wild and vibrant.
These ones have gold foil cardstock from Recollections. Careful with that though. Spritz the air around your machine with a water bottle. If it's dry, the foil can create static and shut the machine down!
Let's get started! First go to www.dafont.com. Enter "Zengo" in the search bar. It will take you to a free font called Zengo. Click "Download". Then go to where it downloaded. If it's in a zipped file, extract the files. I don't remember if it comes with both .otf and .ttf but the .otf is the one you want to open, then "Install". I don't know anything about doing this on a Mac or Apple type system.
Open up Inkscape, and let's set the Document Properties right away so it's done. Go to Files--->Document Properties, then make the adjustments so it matches this:
I suggest locking the scaling lock, and then enlarging the letter until it's about 7.5" across and up to 10.5" long. You can tweak it at the end if it turns out too large to cut out of 8.5"x11" paper. Of course, if you're planning to use 12x12 paper, you can go bigger. It's hard to see my sizing in this picture.
