I HEART U - Pop Up Card with Tutorial

Hi all, in answer to a request for help in making a card like this suitable for our cutting machines to tackle, I played around with different things and managed to get a working svg for the design. (My photo is not so perfect as I rushed and tore part of it lol and it isn't even on the backing straight) sorry!!!  But yes, if you take the time to do it properly, it will be fine :)

A couple of ladies have on earth do you get it to cut around the letters like that for popping them out, it's just a matter of a bit of node editing, and drawing in some extra cutting lines, but anyhooo, all the screenshots and info on how I made it are in the Tutorial which you can download in PDF.


This is what the finished cutting file looks like (3 layers) base card, cutting layer, scoring layer, cut your score layer with minimal pressure and a bit slower perhaps on some machines to avoid tearing the cardstock.

You can download the SVG HERE and the TUTORIAL HERE.
