Instructions

STEP 1 - PURCHASE & DOWNLOAD THE SVG CUT FILE

Purchase the SVG Cut File for the Easter Gnome Boy Layered 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.

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, pen, 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.

  1. Hi Nick, love all the cards so far. Have a question re the black outline of the gnome. Is it cut as an outline, it looked as though there was some kind of a backing. I’m new at this so hopefully my question makes sense. Thank you for sharing all of them!!

  2. I just made both the boy and girl Easter Gnome cards and they turned out really cute! Thank you so much for these files, my grandkids are going to love the cards.
