I have seen several project photos where a name or shape has two colors. How do you do this? I have a cricut expression and I use the CCR.
Thanks

It's the same procedure as when you use paper. Hope this helps!

You cut the base image in the color vinyl {or paper} you want, then cut the layers in the color(s) you want and place them on top of each other.

Do I do the base layer a size bigger to get the shadow effect? I use CCR if that helps. I just got my cricut about a month ago so I am still in learning to use it mode haha

No . . . you DON'T want to change the sizes at all. You need to find a font that has a Shadow Feature button. If you change the size things might not line up correctly.

I did a blog post about this . . . you can read it here

Also, the setting must be on Relative size, not Real size or the layers will not be the correct size. I'm sorry Crying about my earlier post! I didn't realize you hadn't cut paper yet. I guess I shouldn't have assumed. Huh

No problem Sherri! I have always been one to buy something and then learn as much as I can before I start using it..I have played a little but with just regular paper...and I made a sign for my stepson's truck with vinyl but now I want to do more! LOL

GREAT POINT! Test things in paper first! That is something I did for this project . . .



the pumpkins were cut from Stretch Your Imagination, and then I wanted to use Pumpkin Carvings to cut out faces. I cut one face from paper . . . some cheap scrap piece of paper . . . to make sure I had the size right before I cut the faces out of the Square 1 adhesive backed material (I use Square 1 instead of "traditional" vinyl) Since the product removes easily we can change out the faces as often as we want. I actually cut 6 different faces, and we mix and match the different pieces we want to use.
