At the store where I work we have special events to introduce new things to our customers. In September, we will be hosting one that features embroidery projects from a company named Kimberbell. The ladies in charge of the event decided to give each attendee a special memento to remind them of the event. A plastic glass was selected and I was asked to “help” create the cutting files for a vinyl design to be placed on the glass. The design that was selected is one that will be used on a project at the event.
American Crafts Adhesive Vinyl (Black)
Oracal 631 Vinyl (White and Green)
KNK Force Red Blade, Passes 1, Blade Tension 1, Cutting Depth 18, Cutting Speed 15, Overcut .42
Since the entire design is not visible in the photo, here is a screen shot of the design in Make the Cut.
I made liberal use of the Shadow Layer tool in MTC to bulk up the spider’s legs and the letters. The bow was borrowed from a built in shape in Sure Cuts A Lot and bulked up also with the Shadow Layer tool. I’ve learned that the next time I want to have some curvy or swirly lines, I can easily draw them in SCAL rather than struggling as I did this time in MTC.
Now to teach the ladies doing the event about cutting vinyl, weeding, and using transfer tape. Only 14 more glasses to do!
