How Do You Do This?

I would guess that you need to put the smaller type on a thin black box to match the background. I don't think the large red letters had anything done to them.

Thanks for your help! That layout was just an example but I have seen several where the text was "cut out" or split and other text inserted over it. I think I figured out how to do it though. I rasterized the type, then deleted a section using the marquis tool, then created a new type layer and inserted it over it! Not sure if it's the "right" way, but it seems to work. Thanks again and I may purchase those templates, since I like the look so much.

I've done exactly what you did, Kathy - and whatever works is right!

 

Another option; I think it works better if the smaller text is script, over large base text.:

 

- Position your smaller text where you want it over the base text. If you want strokes or styles, add now.

- Use the Select tool > Expand option to put dancing ants around the smaller text.

- With the dancing ants still active, choose the base text layer and delete.

You should be left with a space around the script

 

Happy playing!
