Hi All , newbie to Sure Cuts A Lot ....especially rhinestones

I am trying to make a single stoke lettering rhinestones, but no matter what I do I am getting double strokes which too me just looks too busy..

I have tried offsetting but I must be doing it wrong as it looks awful

Any tutorial or help will be welcome ... pretty please

Hi, sometimes I find that checking "fill shape with stones" puts the stones inside the letters thus giving you only one line insted of outlining the font.

Also, there are specific fonts for rhinestone desugb that do what you want. Check out some of them here

there are several videos on making rhinestone templates using scal on the web.

Inkscape does a really nice jog of single line for rhinestone using interpolate subpaths, there are 3 great videos on how to if you have and can use Inkscape. Here is my favorite. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imXr7DyY-sM

Hope this helps.
