illustrator drop shadow technique needed
on Jul 17, 2008 at 5:10:16 pm

How can I create a drop shadow effect like a shadow box. I used a rectangle with a smaller rectangle cutout of the middle. I would like the drop shadow to be on all sides of the inner cutout area, like the light source is showing the whole outer border floating above the background and the shading is in the middle cutout area & not half of the outer. It is driving me batty.
