Making a thin silhouette of virtually any image using Design Studio

It's actually pretty easy to make a silhouette of any image using Design Studio. All you have to do is click on the image you want a silhouette of, click on shadow, and then move the shadowed version of the image on top of the initial image. The image is not as "thick" as a regular silhouette that you'd get on a cartridge that comes with the silhouette feature, but you may like the result anyway.

I enlarged the image in the last screen shot so you could see it better. Please note that you do not check the weld box to get the silhouette. You want your Cricut to cut out both images, because you get a regular and a "shadow silhouette".
