Easter Card for Paper Crafters

I use a Silhouette Cameo Cutting machine for my paper crafting and I design all my own files using Illustrator.  I have a sister site were I sell these files to other crafters.  And at this site every download comes with the file in SVG, PNG, DXF and PDF formats. That is because ANY paper crafter can make these files.  Here is my latest file design as a 3d Easter Card that can fold flat for mailing.

This file can be made using a Cricut or a Brother ScanNCut but it can also be cut by hand using and exacto knife.  Yes it takes longer, and it takes skill but many people do make my files with out the cutting machine.

In each tutorial I provide links for folks with other cutting machines to help in the prep of files.

  • For the Silhouette: The SVG files from this site will need to be turned into cutting files. Click here for detailed steps on how to use SVG files on your Silhouette.
  • DXF files can be opened in the basic edition of Silhouette Design Studio but often require modifications. I recommend using the Designer Edition and using svg files.
  • For Cricut ExploreHere is a guide for importing into Cricut Design Space.
  • For Brother ScanNCut: The svg files will need to be transferred to files for your particular machine. You can change SVG files to FCM files at or Google "How to import SVG files into a ScanNCut" for links to tutorials.

And, after cutting, there is can easy to follow tutorial for the assembly.
