Fathers day pennant

Creating the design

First, download and insert the Pennant design (link below) into your design window. Adjust to size making sure this is not wider than the media you plan to cut this out of. Here the paper is set to A4.

To make it easier to work, alter the orientation of your mat using the Page Setup window, and rotate the view by 270˚.

Download and insert #1 Dad design (link below). This design comes in two lines, however, it would fit better within the pennant on one line. To do this, right click on the design and select release compound. When you do this, all the lines will separate from one another – this will include the inners of the ‘d’s’ etc. 

Before moving words around, make sure you group all the lines within ‘dad’ and right click on this to do this.

Altering the design

Align the ‘#1 Dad# within your pennant, you can group the words at this point. This will allow you to apply a sketch fill to all of the words at once.

Before applying a sketch fill, the design needs to be converted back into a compound path. Right click on the design and select ‘make compound path’. If you do not group and select ‘make compound path’ for the individual words than when you come to sketch fill later on, it will sketch the inners of the ‘d’s’ etc.

Apply the sketch fill

To apply the sketch fill, open the sketch window by clicking on the sketch pen icon on the right-hand toolbar. The best way to apply the fill, is to select the concentric fill option. This can also be used with a Curio for concentric embossing.

When you apply the fill you can alter the spacing. This spacing is the space between each concentric line fill. The smaller the spacing the mover of the design will be filled. You can alter this fill to your desire.

Using line colour to draw and cut

To make it easier for drawing and cutting, turn the line colours to the different elements with different colours. For the offset, the line colour was turned to green, and the cut line for the pennant was turned to blue.

The offset was drawing in a light blue Stadtler pen, this was inserted into the pen holder using the large ring – you need to check the size of your pen with the different rings to decide which holds the pen the best.

With only the green line selected this was drawn using the pen holder, however, if you have the cameo three and two pen holders you could draw with both slots in your machine and draw the sentiment with another colour of ink.


Lastly, once all the designs are drawn, turn the red and green lines off and check the blue line on and cut this out.
