INSTRUCTIONS FOR GNOME VALENTINE CARD FOR CRICUT WITH FREE SVG
Upload the project from where you saved it and pick the SVG. It might say Microsoft edge here for you, but it is an SVG open that.
You it. can tag it so you can find it later.
Save it when it comes in, then select it. There’s a green box that goes around it and insert the image.
Most images that you upload become are already grouped. So I’m going to ungroup it so I can move the gnome over. He’s also grouped, but he doesn’t need anything done to him. Move the two red hearts over just out of the way.
You’ll see, there’s a line right here that goes through the black part of the double hearts that is the inside of your card. The score lines already there for your convenience.
Select it by clicking on it. Go up to the tool bar and where it says cut in the box click the arrow and select score.
Now it’s a dash line and it’s a dash line going all the way through the heart. Select the Dashed Line and hold the shift key down and select the two hearts.
Then hit attached down here in the bottom right corner. N ow those two hearts and the black line is connected and when yo u go to cut, you will be prompted to put in the score blade. It will make that crease so that it’s easier to fold and gives a nice clean fold.
Use one red heart on the back of the card, and one that goes on the inside of the card and we have one that goes on the outside of the card. Use Tacky glue to glue the red hearts to the black.
I don’t like to waste paper, so I will go ahead and try to move these, to another mat to save paper. So I can definitely put the two hearts together here. I can probably move this heart, this hat over here. So I’m only using two pieces of red paper. So I’m going to go ahead and move this one over to this heart and they lay on top of each other. So just pull it down and see how you can arrange it so that you’re saving your paper, the majority of your paper.
Cricut has these little borders around the edges that are .5 inches and you cannot move any closer or further to, but you can see now we’re saving at least one piece of paper.
Now we have the white,
one of the reds, another blank one.
You can use scraps for the nose and for the white I’ll use white scraps or a smaller piece of white card stock.
Make sure your machine is on and ready to go. Select medium card stock. Use the default pressure.
Fold on the score line. Create a nice crease there. So now we have our card.
The heart with the cut outs are meant to go on the top, but you can also cut another red heart to put it on the inside.
I always use the tacky glue it dries fast
The gnome is also very simple. To make it 3d use the foam dots. Attach the hat to the red background.
Then attach the beard. Use the white heart from the beard and attach it to the hat . Then attach the nose. Then attach the gnome to the front of the card with foam dots also.
Tacky glue the leftover hearts to the back.
