how to create a drop shadow effect in Canva

About a week ago a subscriber on my Youtube channel asked me about creating a drop shadow effect for text elements on Canva. While the graphic design site doesn’t explicitly offer drop shadowing as an option when customizing text, it is possible. Creating this effect just requires a bit of thinking outside the box and getting a little creative with what Canva already allows you to do.

Once you have a graphic put together, manipulating the text is pretty simple. It’s somewhat tricky to explain, so the quick video below shows you exactly how you can obtain this design in just a few minutes.

If you have any suggestions for additional tutorials you’d like to see regarding Canva, please let me know! I have a few posts and videos planned, but would love to hear from you guys what you need a little extra help with!
