Video Tutorial - Creating a Mother's Day Card in Inkscape

Someone on one of the Cricut groups I belong to asked for some help in making an SVG design she had into a Mother's Day Card. Upon looking at the file I realised there were a few issues with it that might not make it perfect for using in that way.

I created this video for her to show how to alter the file so that it would make a better card, and I include the SVG of the end result here. The original file came from someone else's blog so I can't distribute it here unfortunately, but if you want to mess around trying some of the things I demonstrate, you can use the file I've included on this page!

I hope you find it useful! :)

If you'd like a copy of the file that I produced at the end, you can get it by right clicking and saving here.

AWESOME!! You always make it seem so easy to do... thanks for making a tutorial video- it is much easier to understand when you can see what you are doing instead of just reading it.

Wow! You make that look so easy. I was just looking for grid lines the other day to line up some things. Now I know where to find them. Thanks!
