A slightly complex mix of tools and techniques.
The project bootstraps from the awesome Cuttle Picture Frame Template. The card fits into the slot that the template uses for the clear acrylic.
The frame pieces are Proofgrade plywood. The card is 1/16" Rowmark engraving plastic from Johnson Plastics Plus.
I pulled the Cuttle SVG into Adobe Illustrator and added the Hebrew prayer (“Shehecheyanu”) to the top frame piece.
The card says:
It is the year 5783 in the Jewish calendar.
The Glowforge application doesn’t like it if the engrave has two vector objects on top of each other—it creates gaps in the engrave where they intersect—so the letters and the star have to be joined as a single vector object, except for the one letter that happens not to overlap.
Probably not of general interest , but Hebrew is read right to left, so text strings are encoded in the wrong order if you simply cut and paste into a drawing application like Illustrator. You can use an online tool to flip the characters so when you paste them into Illustrator they appear in the correct order.
