Who knew? YOU, that’s who. And now, ME too! That’s for sharing!

It took me a few minutes to figure out that I needed to go to the top left side of my Design Space toolbar for Step 7 (I guess there used to be a pop-out panel, but there isn’t anymore). Once I realized that though, I was “off to the races”. :running_woman:

Thanks again!

Awesome. I will have to try this. I have always just used the regular colors for fonts but I have some of the “texture papers” from $1 sales and DB.
