You can create more visual interest for your project by combining multiple Linetype selections in Design Space. In this project we use the Draw > Foil and Draw > Pen Linetype selections.
Note: Cricut Joy completes the Foil step just before the Cut step. Any other Linetype selections are completed before the Foil step, which means the Foil Transfer Sheet is applied to your base material mid-project without unloading the mat. Due to Cricut Joy’s space-saving size, this can be a challenge. Position your design and material partway down the mat to make it easier to affix the Foil Transfer Sheet when it’s time.
- Insert desired images and text, then select a Linetype for each. In this example, we set the flowers to Draw > Foil and the text to Draw > Pen.
Tip: For text with a single-stroke appearance, choose a font that has a Writing style.
- Select the foil color you plan to use from the color swatch panel so Design Space can prompt you to use the correct material. Do the same for any Draw Linetype that uses a pen so you get prompted to insert the right pen color.
- Position images as desired. Use Attach to fasten Foil and Draw with pen layers to the appropriate Cut layer. Then select Make It to send your project to the machine.
- Attached items appear together in the preview, along with an ordered list of each Linetype to be executed by the machine. Continue to the cut screen.
Tip: Move your design away from the edges and top of the mat on the project preview and place your base material on the mat accordingly. This will make it easier to switch foil colors when it's time.
- Select the material setting for your base material. In this example, we’re using cardstock. Follow the on-screen prompts to insert tools and prep materials as needed.
Important: If your project uses multiple colors or Linetype settings on the same cut layer, do not unload the mat when it’s time to change the tool or foil color. Be sure to remove foil as prompted before the final cut step.
