Since I got my Cricut Explore Air 2 a little over a year ago, I’ve been obsessed with svg cut files! I’ve had so much fun turning my hand lettered designs into cut files to create fun projects and to share them here at Liz on Call. Most of my files however, have been single layer files. I love making t-shirts, but they are usually just one layer of iron on vinyl. Which is super easy and fun! With this love notes free svg cut file I decided to step it up a notch, and made it 3 layers.
I’ve had this design created for a few weeks and finally found the perfect surface on which to put it. These cute felt Valentine’s envelopes were found in the dollar section of Target. I knew they’d be the perfect canvas for this cut file.
For this project you will need:
Felt envelopes from Target or other surface
Easy Press or Iron

Download the cut file and make sure to unzip the file. Open Cricut Design Space and start a new project. Upload the cut file into Design Space. Size the file to fit onto your crafting surface. Click Make it and choose the type of material you will be cutting the design out of. If you are going to cut it out of heat transfer vinyl, make sure and click mirror image before cutting EVERY layer of the design.
Once the images are cut, weed out the unwanted vinyl from your layers.
I love that the protective plastic sheet is a little sticky so I could see how the layers looked all together before I ironed them onto the felt envelope. Do NOT iron them like the picture below. Each layer needs to be ironed on seperately. I just stacked them like this so I could envision the final project. You will see in the photos and instructions below how to layer your vinyl.

I used my Cricut Easy Press to iron on my layers of vinyl. For this particular project, since I was ironing onto felt, the temperature was set for 275 degrees for 20 seconds. I did the first 2 layers for about 12 seconds. Then the last layer I did the full 20 seconds. I noticed it didn’t adhere in a couple places, and there looked to be some air bubbles, so I covered it with the teflon sheet and pressed it witht the Easy Press for another 20 seconds. The best way to use your easy press is on a hard surface with a folded towel under your felt envelope.
Make sure to keep the plastic sheet on top of your iron on vinyl while pressing your design. Removing it can ruin your vinyl and your easy press or iron.
Once the red outline layer was ironed, I removed the plastic sheet and layed the second layer on top. I made sure to position it where I liked. That is one of the things I love about iron on vinyl. You can peel off the plastic sheet and adjust it until it is positioned where you like before you iron it on. Also you will see in the second picture down, I had to use the plastic sheet from the red layer to cover the bit of red vinyl that would have been exposed to the iron. You’ve got to make sure all the vinyl is covered with some sort of protective layer before you put an iron onto.
Once I pressed the second layer onto it, I removed the plastic protective sheet. I think it looks great with just 2 layers too. So you could totally do just the two layers and call it good. But I wanted to add that 3rd layer to get a little more color in there. Again, make sure to cover all the vinyl with a protective sheet before placing an iron on it to press it.

Remember this file comes with 3 layers. The outline/offset layer, the second letters layer and the top letters layer with the cut outs.
