The split level monogram is probably my favorite at the moment. I not only like the look, but I also think it is used less than other traditional monogram types. Did you know that you can make a split level monogram in Cricut Design Space? It is easy, but it does require a few steps and the use of the slice tool. Open up Cricut Design Space and let’s make one!
If you like video tutorials, see the video tutorial below. Or keep reading for the photo tutorial.
Please be aware the the photo tutorial was done in a previous version of Cricut Design Space, but the process is still the same.
Type the letter (or letters) that you want to split. Change them to the font that you want. At the very end, you can resize it to the size for your project, so do not worry about that right now. I’m using the Cake Basics font below.

Select “insert shapes” on the left hand menu, and add a square. On the lower left hand of the square, click the lock icon so that it turns to unlock.
Pull the square to create a rectangle. This rectangle will be the line that is split (see the finished example- the line about and below the full name).
Copy and paste this rectangle to create a duplicate.
Pull one rectangle over the large letter. Keep in mind that wherever you place the line will determine the top half of the split letter. Once the rectangle is placed, select the rectangle and the large letter and then click “Weld” on the right hand layers panel.
Pull the second rectangle over and SPLIT the FIRST RECTANGLE.
Make sure the lock icon is clicked to unlock and then pull the SECOND rectangle down to cover the bottom half of the letter. Select the second rectangle and the welded letter. Click “slice.”
Delete all the elements except for the bottom and top half of the big letter.
Add the name/word to the middle.
Make sure that all the layers are centered and aligned as you would like. Select them all, and then click “Attach” on the right hand layers panel.
Once the layers are attached, you can resize the entire piece to fit your project. Then send it to be cut. All done!
