    Using Fonts Help

    Good morning everyone.
    I would like make cards with greetings using font which when cut, would be able to read the words, when an insert is placed behind
    the card.( Example like using a stencil font) Then the waste of the words are left on the cutting mat.
    The fonts i have used seem to remove the centers of O,P,B,D,Q,0,R,A,9,6,. Can anyone point me in the right directions which fonts to use please. I am using cameo 3. Thanks in advance. Happy crafting.

    If you Google stencil fonts you will find lots - there are some here for free https://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=114. Also you can make any font into a stencil with the Studio software by using the eraser or knife tools to make a bridge. If you Google “how to make stencil fonts for silhouette cameo” you will find lots of tutorials.

    I often use Soft Autumn which is a true TYpe font. I hope you let us know how you get on with it all.

    Hello, yes i found the soft autumn. There are so many. will write the names down beside the font. It was good to see some of the fonts that only use lower case letters. Thanks for all your help. Happy crafting
