    Hi,
    I need help! Please? Trying to follow along and learn from your Making Silhouette Aperture Cards video and just running into trouble. I get as far as the inside square cut out, but on your video the rectangle and the inside sq are linked, joined, but on mine, no, the outter rectangle is not connected to the inside cut out. What am I missing????

      Id suggest watching the video through from start to finish and then watch it through replicating each step exactly.

        OK, I have done that. And I”m still missing something. I’ve opened two windows on my super large monitor screen…(24″ diagonal) and still something is passing right by me.
        What step am I missing? Or, is there a written tutorial somewhere? I’ve even tried reading the CC under the video, and because of the way the program picks up the accent in your voice, some of the words just aren’t what you are saying.

        I really want to learn this.

        John, first, thank you for your extra help, It’s really appreciated. Alright, at point 2:02 in the video you are now dragging both the card outline and the inner cut line around. BUT I don’t see where you connected both together. I do need to be upfront with you, I am visually disabled and sometimes things others see, I don’t. So from time to time I need some extra help.

        Ok, I’ve had a look.
        Yes, you are definitely missing a step. To get to that stage there were a couple of actions at 1:26 and 1:35 that needed to be completed.
        I took on board your previous comments and have transcribed (apart from major waffle) new subtitles and hope that these will help you follow along a little better.

    Thank you John – awesome video – I learnt quite a few new things again – a different way to create the fold line – had no idea you could change the font in the properties box – and a couple I can’t remember till I watch again….thank you…. One day I’d love it if you could create words that go OVER the edge of card and also have some parts of word that actually cut into the main body of the card too! these are a new die range and I love them…but would love to be able to do it in canvas!
