It has come to my attention that some users are confused about how the Lettering Delights' SVGs layers work in Make-the-Cut and have misunderstood my posts around this topic. (e.g. in Calendar Girls "I wasn't comfortable with the original layers of this doll and so..." )
Detailed layers allow the crafter the flexibility of combining and simplifying to his/her desires. It is how you make the image your own. In many of my projects, you will see me make changes to the layers. This is a very personal choice and makes each card unique. This does not indicate that the original layers are somehow unworkable.
Note that MTC has supported LD's SVGs very well since v3.0. You can look that this tutorial for more info. In version 3.2, it became even easier when there is no longer a need to use "Reverse Order". Separating a LD SVG into its respective layers is now just one click away ("To Each Its Own")!
To help clarify, look for a new updated tutorial using MTC v3.2 and SVGs from Lettering Delights in the next couple of days. In the meantime if you have any questions, please post in the comments below.
