This tutorial is all about creating a white border, or offset, to your images. SCAL4 makes this task EXTREMELY easy! Gone are the days of duplicating the layers using DS and arranging them slightly offset around the original image.

Open up you image in SCAL4. Next, select "Effects" from the horizontal menu at the top, and then select Shadow Layer.

This will bring up a new window where you can change the color and size of the shadow layer. If you are creating stickers, you will want your shadow layer to be white. I chose grey just for an example. 0.200 in is a good size for stickers but feel free to play around with the settings to suit your needs.

Select all the layers in the Layers panel on your right and group. If you are wanting to make stickers, you can then go to file, export, and save as a PNG. You will be able to upload a PNG file in to cricut to print your stickers. Stay tuned for another "Teach me Tuesday" to show you how to do that!
