hello! from Seattle

I found a font the other day that got me pretty excited.  Each letter in the Cityscape font reflects an image of a landmark, or a famous skyline. When I saw the Space Needle, I was thrilled! I could make a quick note card with it.

I gave my Silhouette Cameo a break and made today's card solely with Adobe Photoshop and my printer. No Silhouette Studio or Make-the-Cut was used. The card is 100% printed but 200% fun to make.

Cityscape is a cool idea for a font and while I was happy that I could use it for a Seattle card, I was bummed that I couldn't make out what cities many of the letters were supposed to represent. Facebook Fan Becky Dopp made a few good guesses. What about you? Can you tell what cities are reflected in each letter?

You can download the Cityscape font from HERE.

  4. Did you try to send the original creator of the font a message asking him?

    1. Good question, TonyaKaye! I did think about that but then decided against it. If I can't make out what city the letter represents, I wouldn't use that letter anyway.
