Create this easy to make Layered Heart
With Valentine’s Day approaching I wanted to create another layered heart for the upcoming holiday.
I will show you how to create this easy to make Layered Heart using your Cricut Maker. This pretty layered heart was created using two shades of pink cardstock, I shade of purple cardstock and purple glitter cardstock. This is a very easy design that even a beginner can create.

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
Then take the next layer
and put foam glue dots on the back of it
Place that layer on top of the bottom layer
Next take the third layer
then put foam glue dots on the back of it
Then place the third layer on top of the second layer
Next take the top layer
put foam glue dots on the back of it
the foam glue dots on the middle of this layer I cut them in half before adding them
Now you can add the top layer to the layered heart
Now your layered heart is complete
