Aperture name cards

PhotobucketI had a recent
request for some name cards done with an aperture. I learned to do it from a video by dan99. His link is the Free Templates link in my sidebar takes you to his site and I've included here a direct link to the video for those that wish to try it themselves (though I'm still happy to take requests!)

The adorable bird is from the Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) forum page listed on the sidebar under Helpful Pages. My SCAL .svg files has some bookmarks with the names - Bruce, Chris, Delores, Donna (and a Donna card), Heather, Jim, Laura, Sally, Timothy. I will try to include a bookmark template there, too.

How to make aperture name cards in Inkscape

So, I've added a few names to the list and made a basic template available.


Aperture Name Cards and template svg files here!

The available files are done in a slightly heavier script than the Carmen card above so they are easier to weed without the letters falling would be easy to cut a rectangle around the name and put a translucent paper behind and personalize a night light. I did a star template in an earlier post this snowy weekend...guess these late winter storms are good for something!

Have Fun and Happy Crafting!



  1. I love that my bird made it all the way to a card--on someone else's blog. SO CUTE!

  2. Thanks so much for dropping in! I adore that bird! And glad to know who is behind it! Do you have other designs around? Please stop in telling what will show up here!


Thank you for taking time to visit me...please leave a greeting in your native tongue...(however, we may need a translation, too)!

I barely speak English some days but I'll start...Greetings and Welcome!
