How to Make Layered Greeting Cards

Today, we’ll walk through how to make quick and easy Cricut cards for beginners.

With a little creativity and the right tools, you’ll be able to make professional-looking cards in no time using your Cricut machine.

– Cutting machine – Cardstock – Adhesive – Cricut mat – Bone tool, scoring wheel, or scoring stylus (optional) – Art glue – Cricut pens (optional)


Upload the color block SVG of your choice to Design Space. This is where you will scale your card, change the color of your cards and add scorelines.


Select your material in Design Space. Load your paper onto your cutting mat. I like to use a brayer tool to press the paper to the mat.

Repeat this for all the colors. These color block card designs are ideal for using up paper scraps.

If you are using a scoring stylus or pen, Cricut will ask you to load that in clamp A to perform those tasks.

Cut out your cardstock on Cricut. Use glue and/or tape to add all the elements to your card base.
