While this may look like it would be a complicated technique to learn, our designers have made it super simple with some Styles and Actions that they have for sale in the Scrap Girls store.
I love working with styles so I was excited to give this one a try! The set comes with several different styles, each giving a different depth to the cut-out. The other thing that’s great about this set is that the punched-out item will take the look of the background paper, as seen in my layout below.
What does that mean? If you add a patterned paper or photo to a custom shape or font and then apply the style, the style will not change the look of the item it’s applied to. This allows you to get creative and do things like having each letter of a title be in a different pattern as shown below.
