Hello,

I am learning more and more by the day, and reading through the community has helped.  I apologize if I do not use the proper terms.  ( am learning them as well still). I have a mask that I have applied an effect to.  These effects (saber) extend beyond the border of the mask. making it look like a fire in a rectangle.  How do I set this up so that the effect follows the mask and can still have room exist without clipping?  Thank you in advance....  
I have autotraced a friends logo to create the paths screenshot below...

Try using the "Grow Bounds" effect, not sure if it works for this, since it never works for me. Make sure the effect is above Saber.

thank you for the suggestion.  I however made the mistake in the way i used this.  I pasted the mask to a new layer with the right size and I am now good to go.
