    Default Help with shield and cross

    I need a little help with this shield and cross if anyone is up to it. I couldn't find the simple shield or this cross in the store or pattern sharing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the low quality of the pic, this is what they gave me.

    Hi John; I think this should work ? I also made the pattern as a single file. I lost your e-mail, send me a "PM" with your e-mail. I can send you the complete file.

    John,

    I am really new at building patterns but did this one fairly quickly. I don't have center line so left the text blank. You can add text using basic designer but I think it would look better with a negative carving. The shield itself also has a slight curve which makes positive reliefs slightly different depths. If someone has center line and feels like placing the text in the shield I would love to have it as well. Hope someone can use this. This is one I will be carving.

    I added a picture of the shield on how it would look with text but think a negative carving would look better.

    Oscar; good job. You can get a negative effect by using raster and a negative merge on text. However sometimes when you group for a pattern you can lose the effects. For this pattern to hold I left a positive merged screw outside the pattern . go figure. Also I outlined and used extrude for the curve, merging the "cover shield"

    Awesome Karl,
    that is what I was trying for, just didn't have the time to play with it.

    My hat is off to you Karl, that one came out great.
    I rarely download a pattern, this one I did!
