You can create more visual interest for your project by combining multiple Linetype selections. In this project, we use the Foil Linetype in Fine, Medium, and Bold, as well as Draw and Score.
- Insert desired images and text, then select a Linetype for each. In this example, we duplicated the flower image and set one Linetype to Foil – Fine, another to Foil – Medium, and the third to Foil – Bold.
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, so you get prompted to switch pen colors.
- Position images as desired. Use Attach to fasten Foil, Draw, Score, etc. layers to the appropriate Cut layer. Then select Make It to send your project to the machine.
- Attached items appear together on the same mat in the preview, along with an ordered list of each Linetype to be executed by the machine. Continue to the cut screen.
- 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: For Foil Transfer projects with Cricut Explore Machines always turn your dial to Custom, then select your base material from the list in Design Space. Do not use the dial settings with Foil Transfer Tool, even if they match your base material (i.e. do not use the Cardstock dial setting, even if you're foiling onto cardstock).
Important: Move white star wheels to the right. 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 foil color or tip. Be sure to remove foil as prompted before the final cut step.
