Wondering how to slice in Cricut Design Space? Here is everything you need to know, from how to slice images & text, to why the slice button is greyed out and not working. Plus, learn a few cool tricks for using Slice to make awesome stuff!
Create a file in Cricut Design Space with multiple shapes or layers.
Position one shape over the other, then select both shapes.
Click "Slice" to slice the layers. You will end up with separate layers for each sliced image.
Using slice in Cricut Design Space is pretty simple, but there are a few rules you have to follow.
You can only work with two layers at once. If you select more or less than two layers, the slice button will be greyed out.
Slice won’t work on a grouped image; you have to ungroup before you can slice.
The slice tool doesn’t work on multi-layered images. If the image you want to slice has multiple layers, you must hide or ungroup the other layers before the slice tool will work.
Hidden layers will disappear after slicing. Be sure to unhide any layers you want to keep before slicing.
Slice only works on overlapping images. If your images aren’t stacked on top of each other, nothing will happen when you slice them.
Slicing text is slightly different and doesn’t necessarily follow the previous rules. You CAN slice multi-layered text (i.e. text with a hidden shadow layer) and the hidden shadow layer won’t automatically disappear.
