Cutting Out the Layered Heart

Upload the Layered Heart in to design space.

Size the Mandala to the size. you want to cut it out

For the top layer I used a glitter cardstock that was heavier. Because of the intricate detail you will need to use a thicker cardstock than a medium cardstock.

Now your Layered Heart is ready to be cut out

Next you will click on "Make It" and the prepare mat screen will appear.

Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the pink Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut. 

Assembling the Layered Heart

Starting with the bottom layer lay it on your workspace
