I was asked by my wife to make a cake topper for a friend's wedding. They are the operators of a Greyhound adoption group, and the dogs are a big part of their lives.
She had found something along the lines of what she had wanted, but it only had 2 dogs, she needed 3. I am not an artist, but I do have Vectric software for the CNC that I was able to use to copy an image and trace the outline. I was also able to trace several different versions of a 3rd dog, and play around with the placement of them to make a topper everyone agreed on.
I was originally intending on just veining cuts for the 3rd dog, but that left the Groom on very wobbly legs.... so I decided on an overlay. The finished piece will be in a metal leaf, if I don't snap the delicate tails off.
Using the software was a great way to draw and share the designs, and go back and forth quickly with every recommendation or comment

Well done, Doug. I've used Adobe Illustrator for over 30 years, and I find it's sometimes easier to create what I need with Vectric's V Carve vector tools, rather than the established drawing program. That's a really nice cake topper.
