April 24, 2010 Update: I`ve added a direct downlink box for nesties lookalike font. Here it is:
I've spent a good week on this one: a set of Nestabilities look-a-likes. These are based on most of the nesties basic shapes and labels, although I might have missed some. At first I was creating SVGs, then I found a most awesome blog with tutorial on how to create fonts with inkscape. Well, if you've seen my blog, you know I'm a technophile who really loves inkscape (now that I've gotten the hang of it!). So this was the perfect opportunity. Here's the result:
and a cut sample:
Side by side with a real Nestie (nestie cut is white)
This TTF dingbat font has 6 cirlces, 4 flower, 5 ovals, 2 octogons, 2 paisleys, 4 regular rectangles, 2 long rectangles, 4 squares and 14 labels. Interspersed and to keep the font organized, there's a cute ladybug ding too!
When you use this file, you'll need to save the font on your computer then install the font -- the fastest way is to find the file and right click on it, select "install". It will then appear in fonts in your cutting software. I would highly suggest you keep the proportions when working with the dings, especially the scallops! Here's a tag I made with the look-a-like rounded rectangle:
To request this file, I'm doing something I don't do: I'm making you comment if you want it! LOL. Anyone who wants the file is welcome to it, but I'm asking you to leave me a comment with a way to email you the file. Further, if you ask for and receive the file, please do not distribute it in any way, but direct people to my blog instead. My other cuts are fun and I like making them, but this one is special to me :-)
Finally, if you find you like the shapes, I encourage you to buy the nesties. I have a half dozen sets that I just love, and the embossing is so pretty! Also, make sure you grab my button, and if you make anything with this ttf, I'd love to see it! Thanks for the visit!
