Echo Park Sweet Summertime Plane



Ever since Lettering Delights added SVGs to their product line, I hardly ever use Adobe Photoshop to tweak a graphic for tracing anymore. I do like to convert LD graphics so that they can be easily traced in Make-the-Cut and just for fun, I converted the plane from the Get A Job graphics set into an MTC cuttable using the same method as shown in my tutorial here.
                                               
If you do not have access to Photoshop, don't fret because you may also obtain the layers of the plane by pixel tracing the image 3 times(threshold 130,190 and, 225). This method of tracing multiple times was shown in my Beginner tutorial here. Of course, if you don't want to mess with converting, you can always get the SVG set here

Graphic sets are good to be had because they are great for print-and-cut projects. Also, it is useful to know how to convert a graphic set especially when you already own that. However, sometimes due to the textures in the image, it might be challenging to convert the file. In that case, rather than wasting time converting, it probably isn't a bad idea to get the set in the SVG format too.


For today's card, I used the font LD Funky Chunky for the greeting and printed it out on the card front using the method shown in the tutorial here
 


I love Echo Park papers and the cheerful colors of the Sweet Summertime cardstock was perfect for this card.
