If you have been a regular reader of Liz on Call, you know that the last couple months some super talented designer friends and I have been creating fun cut file bundles for the holidays/seasons/etc. This time our theme was spring. And once again, these ladies knocked it out of the park with their designs. There are so many fun elements, over 30, to this bundle and the project possibilities are endless!
I don’t know if you craft like me, but when I hear SVG, I automatically assume the file needs to be cut out in different layers on either vinyl, heat transfer vinyl, cardstock or paper. It was just recently that I became aware that you don’t have to just cut an svg cut file, I could actually create a print and cut project with it using Cricut Design Space! These files will be super cute cut out of any kind of material you want to use, but this love you bunches file I thought would be fun as a card too. Whether for a Valentine’s Day card, a Mother’s Day card or just to cheer up a friend or family member, in just a few minutes, you will have a really cute card to print and cut and ready to be gifted.
How to print and cut an svg cut file
This video will walk you through just how to use the layers panel to line up your card design, and use the flatten tool in the Cricut Design Space layers panel to create this print and cut card using one of the designs from the spring fresh cuts bundle. I used my Cricut Maker to cut out this card, but any Cricut Explore machine will be able to do the same.
I wanted to use the entire floral bouquet for this card, but you could use just a single stem and flower from this group and add your own words or phrases too.
This Spring Fresh Cuts bundle has a bunch of extras too! If you make a projects using one of these files, we would love to see it! Use hashtag #freshcutsvgbundle on instagram so we can find your project!
I love learning new ways to craft and create and when it’s something so easy like how to turn an SVG cut file into a print and cut design, I call that a win win craft day!
