How to Create a Sliced Text Effect in Canva
1. Add the Letters to Your Design
Go to the ‘Element’ section from the left menu and search for the alphabets you want to have this effect on. For the purposes of this Canva tutorial, we are using the word “Sliced” as as our sample text.
2. Duplicate Each Letter
Align the text as you want and duplicate the text.
3. Align the Letters on Top of Each Other
Place it over the original text and make it a layer.
4. Crop the Letters on the Top Layer
Now crop the text letters from top to the half and do the same with the underlayer by cropping them from the bottom half. To avoid conflicts in the size of the cropped alphabets, use Shft+R to get the ruler.
5. Move Bottom Layer of Letters Slightly to the Left
After getting all the letters cropped precisely, select all the bottom letters and move them slightly to the left side. It will give you a cut effect.
6. Add a Shadow Effect
Once the color picker in Canva is clicked on, you will see a magnifying glass appear wherever you drag your cursor. This magnified view allows you to select the precise color that you want.
