Upload the SVG file. If you need help on how to do this, see the article How to upload and download in Cricut Design Space.
This file does have all of the available images and layers to do three different kinds of mom files or mum. Select it by clicking on it.
A green box goes around it, and it also shows down below in the tool bar. If you decide not to do it, you can always click the X and then it will clear it.
Click on insert image. It’s a rather large file and it comes in groups.
Ungroup it. You can delete these extra “M” you don’t need . Or go over to the right and hide it by clicking on the little eyeball to hide it. Same with the “O” and the “U” if you’re going to use the rose, you would just hide those.
Resize the “Mom” by selecting all the letters at the same time to maintain proportions. Then resize the rose to fit. Use the little box in the bottom right or type your sizes directly into the tool bar. For my project, I resized them to 4.75 inches tall.
Change your colors if needed , this will put them on the different mats that you’re going to need. There’s four different colored layers. Click Make It.
The design will automatically distribute on 12 by 12. You can change this to an eight and a half by 11, if that’s what you’re using and it’ll automatically redistribute them on the mats to the different colors that you need. You have to change the size for each mat according to the size of paper you are using.
Click continue. Select the material you are using. I used medium cardstock. Whenever I have little intricate cuts, I always like to do more pressure.
Make sure that you, have a nice sharp blade. You can do that and you can sharpen it or clean it with, tinfoil by poking it into tinfoil. that’ll help your blade to be cleaned of any vinyl or anything else that’s on it. That also add a little bit of a sharpening to it. For more Tips and Tricks, check out my handy guide here!
Load the material into your Cricut and cut out the design.
Use the foam dots in between the layers by putting them on the back of the layer that you’re putting on top of the other one so you don’t put them in the wrong place.
Put them closer to the edge, and anywhere that the letters might cave in.
Now your design is ready to put in a shadow box or on a board or whatever creative idea you have!
