>>Create Stand-Out Graphics with a Die-Cut Look
By Gary W. Priester
"In my student days, I learned a great technique to make cutout paper shapes
appear to be lit from behind. We'd cut shapes from white paper laminated
with a bright fluorescent color on the back. Then we'd mount the shapes on
white illustration board using 1/8-inch foam shims to lift the shapes above
the board. The fluorescent paper reflected its color onto the white board
below, creating a mysterious neon glow. The effect was magical.
....you can easily re-create it with vector-drawing programs such as Adobe
Illustrator 7, Macromedia FreeHand 8, and CorelDraw 8."
