I LOVE MY SILHOUETTE: Splitting Initials
January 26, 2014
This is a tutorial using the Silhouette, with Designer Edition Software.
Type the letter you’re going to use. I find it MUCH easier to enlarge, and fill with color.
Create a thin rectangle across the middle of the letter. I turn on the grid so I can have everything centered and see where edges are, etc.
Select ALL, open the MODIFY menu. Click SUBTRACT. Allow some time, this takes a while on my system.
Group each half of the letter and move the halves apart using the up/down arrows to keep them aligned. Create a thin rectangle wide enough to accommodate the width of the letter. Copy this rectangle using the duplicate below feature. Move the rectangles. Weld each half (separately) by selecting the letter parts and the rectangle.
Type sentiment or name in the open area using Sail font.
