Scan N Cut Saturday Creative Hack – Welding Text Inside Frames and Apertures

When working without a colour fill on your objects it can be mystifying when you try and weld text inside a frame or aperture and it simply disappears. Here is why and how to correctly weld a word or phrase inside another shape.

Unsure what I am referring to? Well, here is an example of a word welded to the inside of a floral frame.

Make sense now?

The key thing here is that in order to weld something to the inside of a frame it is essential that it is a frame, and not simply two shapes sat on top of each other.

For that reason you must always subtract one shape from another prior to trying to weld anything to it.

Defo easier for me to show, rather than type so here’s a video to explain it all.

Hope it helps!

  2. So helpful. Shape order, filling each shape/layer with a different fill colour, and being able to see the mat through the aperture. Just what I needed to hear to help me. Thank you.
