Birthdays are a big deal right? Well, they are for me, celebrating being another year older is an honour. And I mean any age, not just the milestone birthdays. Our Free Happy Birthday SVG is perfect for such celebrations. This is a single layered file but scroll down to see how to make it into a multi layered file by using duplicate and contour in Cricut Design Space.

Making Your Happy Birthday SVG/PNG On Cricut
Upload your Happy Birthday SVG to Cricut Design Space, follow these instructions if you need help doing this. If you want to create a layered file it’s simple if you follow these instructions.
Start by duplicating your Free Happy Birthday SVG, once duplicated click on one of the layers and click the contour tool, you will find this in the bottom right hand corner of Cricut Design Space.
Now choose which contours to remove, this is personal choice, however I removed the centre of all of the flowers and open petals.
Next duplicate the Free Happy Birthday layer you have just contoured and click contour. You now have 2 choices, you can remove contours for another layer. Or remove all contours and create the back layer.
You will need to ensure all layers line up correctly, they should, however if they don’t, click on the padlock on the corner of the file to adjust. Once you are happy, colour all the layers.
Cutting Your Free Happy Birthday SVG On Cricut
Next, line up all the Free Happy Birthday SVG layers in design space to confirm all files line up correctly and are exactly the same size. However, do remember you are using 3 different colour layers, so have the card stock ready to hand and really think about the colours.
How To Build Your Free Happy Birthday SVG Layered File
Firstly start by making sure they all line up and every layer is the correct way round, then flip all of the layers over.
Next, add a thin layer of glue, (I use cosmic shimmer acrylic glue) to the back of your middle layer and attach it to the back layer, followed by the top glittery layer. I find the cosmic shimmer glue sets really well, but it does give you a second or two to allow you to adjust and slide before setting. However you only need a tiny bit to avoid it leaking.
