Web Wednesday- The unique may be a free Dingbat away!

Some days, you just need something different. The scroll flower is simply a dingbat from a set of TTF. Really! (Would I kid you?)  MTC makes it so easy to expand my creativity with the unexpected. 

Make the Cut Software
Dingbat: "In Your Garden" from Dingbatdepot
Paper: "Forget Me Not"  from Lettering Delights
Font: Palatine Linotype
I - rock and metallic gems

  • Download the desire Dingbat. 
  • Save to a folder on your computer (in MTC it is not necessary to load the font into Windows. 
  • Open the MTC (or similar) software. 
  • On the menu bar:

  • Select the circled button. This will allow you to navigate to the folder where your Dingbat is stored.
  • Double click on the Dingbat. This will temporarily load the "font" into MTC.
  • Select the desired glyph (blue shape) and double click on it.

  • Size your dingbat as desired.
  • Select the entire shape. Choose : Shape Magic: Break
  • Create a shadow layer. Select the image and click on the shadow button.

  • Color the different parts of the cut in shades of the same papers--darkest to lightest.
  • I then printed the sentiment to coordinate:

I hope you enjoyed your visit!
