Celtic knot corner svg

August 28, 2009

One of the features of SCAL2 that I like the most is the ability to import layered svg files into SCAL and use the layers as a design element. I don’t remember what brought the idea to mind, but a few days ago I thought how well suited Celtic knots are for a layered svg to do a combination of markers and cutting. I started with a corner I found on clker.com.  I connected pieces and welded others to make a file ready for cutting.  I used that as the marker layer, then I created the mat behind it for cutting.  Cricut markers are 1.5 mm, which is a little large for most images.  I used a mini gel pen to draw the knot, then changed which layer was visible and exchanged the pen for the blade holder/blade to cut out the corner.  I cut it at 2.5 inches, which was still a little small for the leaf details.
