There are two ways:
1) Cut out the overlay multiple times in all the colors you want to have on your overlay and behind your overlay. SAVE all the negative bits and pieces for each color as you will be using those to piece into the overlay itself using tweezers, a glue pen and lots of patience.
2) Use the Cricut Craft Room and the "hide select contour" feature to quickly create different colored backgrounds that will show through the overlay. It takes very little time to make it this way - no piecing teeny bits.
Below I have a video showing you how to use the Cricut Craft Room to make the different colored sections.
And I also have download links for the file used to make this card.
I used the Close to My Heart Artbooking cartridge (see below):
