Cricut Design Space Basics: Write then Cut / Draw then Cut
The Write then Cut/ Draw then Cut feature allows you to embellish and personalize your projects by writing on an image to be cut with a pen or marker. This feature can be used for writing text or drawing images on cut shapes.
This technique is great for writing on a tag and cutting it out, as well as short phrases and sentiments on cards and other cardstock projects. Center the text (if desired) by clicking on Alignment > Center. If you’re using textured cardstock, place the textured side down on the mat so the writing will be done on the smooth side.
