How to Make Giant Easter Layered Cards

LEARN TO MAKE FUN GIANT EASTER LAYERED CARDS ON YOUR CRICUT CUTTING MACHINE

I love a fun graphic card.

This giant Easter card is not giant in size but the sentiment on the front is big and bold!

A great way to use up your scraps, too!

In this tutorial, I’ll give you my step by step instructions and tell you what materials I think work best when making this project.

This project was part of Happy Crafty Easter 2023.

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
