Cutting text out of an element

How to use it

Cut text out of a foreground element, letting the background show through in the shape of the text.

When to use it

If you have large, easily-read text and an interesting background that you want to highlight, you can let the background show through in the shape of the text.

What to watch out for

It's better to use a simple background for this technique - letting a visually noisy background show through can make text hard to read.
