STEP 1 - PURCHASE & DOWNLOAD THE SVG CUT FILE
Purchase the SVG Cut file for the He is Risen Diorama Card in my shop here.
STEP 2 - UPLOAD THE SVG FILE TO CRICUT DESIGN SPACE
If you aren't familiar with uploading SVG files into Design Space, take a look at my quick and easy tutorial here. Using your smartphone? Click here for my step-by-step guide on uploading SVG files with the Cricut App.
STEP 3 - UNGROUP CARD LAYERS
The file will upload into Cricut Design Space grouped together. You will want to hit the UNGROUP button to separate the layers.
STEP 4 - CONVERT FOLD LINES TO SCORE LINES
Scroll down the list in the LAYERS panel and find the envelope. Click the fold line.Change the fold lines to score lines by changing the OPERATION from BASIC CUT to SCORE.
Attach the score line and the envelope by highlighting the GROUP the envelope is under and selecting the ATTACH option in lower right hand corner.
Repeat this step for the card base.
Click the GREEN Make It Button.
STEP 5 - MAKE YOUR MATERIAL SELECTIONS AND PREPARE YOUR MATS
You will see the mats for this card in the mat preview.
Click the CONTINUE button.
For this tutorial, I am using Medium Cardstock. Select your materials accordingly.
Attach your cardstock to the Cricut StandardGrip Mat using the Cricut Brayer.
STEP 6 - LOADING YOUR MATS AND CUTTING YOUR MATERIALS
To load the mat into the machine, press the double arrows button. Do make sure that the mat is positioned under the mat guides.
You will know the machine is ready to cut your material when you see the flashing "C" button. Press that to start the cut.
Follow Design Space prompts to change out the scoring wheel and fine point cutting blade.
Once the cut is complete, make sure to peel the mat away from the cardstock
rather than the cardstock from the mat. This will prevent any curling of your design.
Repeat Step 6 for until all layers have been cut.
STEP 7 - ASSEMBLE YOUR CARD
Now that everything is cut, we can start to assemble the card.
First, layer the embellishments on the two inside frame pieces. I have included a Layering Guide within the download to help you with this.
Next, layer the inside cover panel.
Add the cover panel to the frame.
Mat and layer the messaging panel.
Begin by folding one side of the card base. Fold the score line toward you. Then following in an accordion, fold the remaining score lines on that side.
Burnish the folds and repeat for the other side.
Next, add glue to the back left and right sides of the frame piece and attach to the card base.
Now, add glue to the back of the sunburst layer and slip into the card base, securing to the back.
Next, add glue to the left and right edges of the large cross layer and slip into the card base adhering to the tab in front of the sunburst layer.
Lastly, add glue to the left and right edges of the two crosses layer and slip into the card base adhering to the tab in front of the large cross layer.
Attach the messaging panel to the back of the card.
STEP 8 - FORM THE ENVELOPE
To make the envelope, begin by folding along the score lines and press the folds with your scraper.
Add glue to the back of the inlay panel as well as around the cutout.
Place the inlay panel over the cutout on the envelope making sure to center it well.
Place the card inside the envelope.
With your card inside, bring the side flaps in and add glue to the bottom of the flaps.
Bring the bottom flap up and press to form the envelope.
Your card and envelope are finished!
Love this card .. just a caution, depending on the weight of your cardstock folks may need xtra postage in the USA.
Also would need extra postage for the square shape.
I am loving these designs, the variety & the detailed instructions for assembly. I can see adding a small battery light towards the bottom of this to use as Easter decor.
