Remember that post on mind dumping from yesterday? This is one of the projects that I’ve had in my idea book forever. I thought it would be neat to have an Etsy shop called “Morse Cards” and make a line of Morse Code cards. My idea was inspired by all the Morse Code jewelry over on Etsy.

  1. Hi! Thanks for this great cut file and tutorial! I would like to make a more personalized card for my husband though. Can you explain (alt 0183) or the middle dot. I’m not following along.

    1. Sure, Janet. Rather than use a period to make the dots, you have to use a middle dot. (A period would sit along the bottom line, while a middle dot sits nicely next to your hyphen. Unfortunately, there is no key on keyboards to type a middle dot. To get one on Windows, hold down the ALT key and type in 0183; on Mac hold down the option key and press 8. Hope that helps!

      1. Still not able to do this. Is it because I use SS 2.8. I tried the (alt 0183) in SS and Word. I use a PC. Windows 8.1. I love this idea, even though I can’t do it. I so appreciate your help!

        1. Janet, I’m not sure why you would have problems – this isn’t a Silhouette Studio function – it’s a function of the computer. Try this: Open Silhouette Studio. Click the text tool on the right hand side to open a text area. Hold down the ALT key with your left hand and type 0183 with your right hand. You’ll end up with a dot. Hope that helps!

          1. Still can’t master it. It must be something wrong with my computer. Thank you for your help though. I will definitely be using your cut file.

  2. At Christmas, my daughter gave me a Morse Code Necklace (decoded it said “Mother”). I love it.
    It’s a fabulous idea to make cards using the Morse Code too Christine. Love your Valentine Card and it’s a great tute.

  3. Hi, Christine. Thank you for this Morse Code Cut File. My granddaughter and I recently read a book about coded messages. I love making cards with her. I think we will enjoy making Valentine’s Day Cards for her class using your Free Cut File. I will challenge her to make up some of her own sayings and we’ll try to make the codes together for a few of them. Thanks again. This is a great teaching tool for both of us.
