How to create a multi layered image from a single layered image in Cricut design space

Posted on 8th March 2018
1-  Open Cricut design space. Click on upload.


2- Select upload image.


3- Click on browse.


4- We have uploaded our single layered image. To make it multi layered for paper piecing etc we need to create a background base, then separate each colour for cutting. Click on complex , then continue. I am using the Valentines day vectors from designbundles.net


5- With your image uploaded using the magic wand, remove any unwanted excess background. Click continue.


6- Select the cut file and save.


7- Insert the saved background to your design space.


8- Your background will appear. Change the colour to your needs.


9- Repeat steps 2-4 and again click on complex image.


10- We now need to select a specific part of the design. A good guide is to create a new layer for each colour you want to cut. So in this case we have used the magic wand to remove everything except the pale blue.


11- With the eraser tool, remove any other parts you do not need. then click on continue.


12- Select the cut file again and save.


13- Insert your next layer.


14- Alter the colour.


15- Repeat the above steps to create all the layers of the image.


16-Layer over each other to recreate your image. Click on make it.


17- As you can now see, the image will be cut in different layers.
