Firstly choose all the elements you want to add to your cake topper and size the main number or letter. Note, you will build the rest of the cake topper elements arounds this. Next choose any elements you wish to layer on top, before sizing them over the top to get the size right. I layered the rocket and stars to give a 3d effect.

Choose elements to layer, in the case I chose stars and a rocket

Now add an offset to the 1st layer, this will automatically set as a print and cut layer, so make sure you change it to a cut layer. Therefore you will finish with a combination of print and cut and cut layers.

Now click make it, this will take you to the print preview page, if at all possible select use printer dialogue you can then choose fine print settings through your printer. I find if you go through design space the print quality is not always as good. Frustratingly, it won’t always connect, for me lately I am struggling, however system dialogue always gives better results. ( it wouldn’t connect for this project)

Also ensure you feed your card the correct way into the printer and press print. When you unload your printer avoid touching the black guide line around the edge of the printed stickers as I find this smudges easily.

Once printed, gently put the card on your cutting mat, I don’t roll it with a brayer as I usually would, simply gently press around the edge. But ensure the mat is sticky and the edges are well stuck down.
