Papercrafting: Layered Bunny Mandala

 


This week's party continues here .

This post contains a referral link for which I may receive free products. 

I mentioned in this week's party post that I love Creative Fabrica as a source for fonts, graphics, and SVG cutting files and that they offer one of each of these for free each day. I downloaded this one when it was free the other day ( it's still available here but no longer free). 

I was excited to play with it and I'm excited to show you how it turned out!

Supplies: 
  • Scrapbook papers 
  • Electronic Cutting Machine ( I used my Cricut Explore Air2, these files also work in Silhouette Design Studio)
  • Spray Glue
  • Frame


Downloaded the file to my computer and imported into Cricut Design Space as follows: 





Click on image on the left side of the design panel, Click on Upload Image. 



Click browse to go to where you've stored your file, and then select the SVG file. 


Your file will appear in your recently uploaded files and then select Insert Image. Once it's on your canvas, then you can re-size as desired. I sized mine 8x8 for a 12x12 frame. 



All three layers will be shown . For me, it's easier to work with one layer on the screen at a time so I can keep straight which layer I want in which color. To hide the layers you don't want to work with, click on the eye icons until only the layer(s) you want is shown. Then you can send to cut each layer. 



I did the background layer in turquoise glitter The middle layer in pastel turquoise. The top layer in cream. 



Since each layer is so detailed and delicate, I used a spray adhesive to attach them. I like the repositionable kind in case you need to adjust. 



Here are the first two layers glued together. Repeat the process to attach the base layer. 



Since this file is so intricate, I kept the background simple to let it stand out, using the same cream scrapbook paper as I'd used for the top layer. Framed in a 12x12 shadowbox frame!


And now I have this very cool new piece to add to my Easter decor and I love it! What do you think?
