Illustrator Tutorial: Simple tutorial with some easy steps, create paper cut out effect in Adobe Illustrator. i will show you the simple and easy way to create this effect. You can use any color, according to your requirement and also choose multiple color on every layer and create a dynamic graphic.
Steps to create graphic.
Create a “Star Tool” shape, with 7 points corners.
Make corners rounded from “Effect – Stylize – Round Corners“.
Make one more copy of the shape & place both shapes in opposite direction. Give light and dark color shade.
Select both shapes, Now apply blend “Object > Blend > Blend Options – Specified Steps“.
I make 3 steps.
And then “Make“.
It will give you something like this shape, if you need to edit no. of steps between these shapes, then go back to “Blend Options” from same menu.
Move dark layer at the back and light above.
Select back dark layer and transform it, make it big as you want. Move both first and last object so that can cover whole screen.
“Object > Expend“
Apply Expend from Object panel and make every shape a separate layer. Slightly change every shape for better graphic.
Move or rotate every layer, so that can look slightly different from other shapes.
Select first one and apply “Effect > Stylize > Drop Shadow“.
Black color “#000000”. I apply blur approx “10 px”, you can change it also, according to you require. Opacity “60”, X and Y Offset “10 px”.
Apply drop shadow to rest of the layer, apart from last one. It doesn’t require.
Make a document size rectangle and “Mask it“.
It’s Ready, Thanks.
