My first year using the Glowforge was spent learning the machine and buying lots of designs off of Etsy for the business my wife and I run. Business was good, but we were just getting started. Last year I started working on some of my own designs with a goal to get one design each month accepted into the Design Catalog. Well, two months in and I just got my second design published.
These are my first two greeting cards in the catalog, with many more to come.
Thank you. With every project I keep exploring new features in Adobe Illustrator. On this project I finally learned about the smoothing tool, so my paths are a lot more flowing an natural. Last year the strings on the balloons would have had a ton of kinks and lumpy curves.
