First time posting - I need help!!
I’m trying to create a word, where the characters will stay attached to each other because the lower third of the characters will be scored and the upper 2/3rds of the characters will be cut out - so need to make the cut color part of the path different from the score color part of the path of each character so the GF “sees” the 2 operations - but I can’t figure out how to accomplish it in Illustrator CC.
Imagine having letters cut out of draft board and gluing them to a popsicle stick to hold them together - but without the glue and the stick
I have converted the font /characters to outlines and I’m trying to split the path of the characters so I can create a stroke Score color (lower 3rd) and a stroke Cut color (upper 2/3rds) on the same character path.
Not sure if / how this can be done.
I may have made this exercise more difficult than it needs to be and can’t see the obvious so hoping another set of eyes will see the light and set me straight.
Thanks in advance!
