New Photo Watermark - Whimsie Cuts


Melyssa, of Whimsie Doodles, has some adorable digital cutting files in her online store that she calls Whimsie Cuts. The latest of these is the Bird Cages set. It comes with 3 adorable cages and a little birdie for only $3! While SVG files are typically meant for use with your digital cutter (ie: Cricut, Silhouette, etc.) they can also be used in your favorite photo editing programs in other ways.


While the card above may look familiar, since I shared it in THIS post last week, the personalized watermark on the bottom is brand new and it uses the 'Dome' birdcage and 'bird' SVG files from Bird Cages Whimsie Cuts! I simply laid out the watermark as I wanted it to look in Illustrator, then saved it as a Photoshop file. Once I opened the file in Photoshop I just had to 'drag' the watermark onto my card photo and adjust the opacity to my liking and save as a JPG for the web. This is just another way you can use all of the fun Whimsie Cuts and other SVG files for sale.
