There’s something special about planning valentines crafts and knowing all the love that will go into your files being downloaded, made and used. And my Free Valentines Love Heart SVG For Cricut And Glowforge is a gorgeous little file.
One that can be used for making layered files, puzzles ( I am totally going to do this soon) cards, scrapbooking layers. Honestly the list goes on, not only that, you can recycle the wastage for cards and key-rings. How crazy Is that?
The beauty of my layered files and mandalas is that you can use all the layers and create something layered, or indeed use one layer on your Glowforge or for a scrapbooking file or outline. Thus my files have multiple uses!

Creating Your Layers In Cricut Design Space
My file comes as a 3 layer project, however you can easily add more layer’s by adding contours to your project. Simply start by duplicating layer 2 and selecting the contour tool. Now you can start to remove contours by clicking on them.
This will enable you to create as many layers as you wish, I created 7 layers in total including my top and bottom layer.
You can see in the below image the result of duplicating and removing contours, the important thing to remember is you have to duplicate the layer then remove the contour. Always duplicate the layer you have just contoured, this way you will create a pattern that will layer.
Cutting Your Valentine Layered Love Heart SVG On Cricut
Line up all the layers in design space, to confirm all files line up correctly and exactly the same size. Remember you are using 7 colours in this case so have the card stock ready to hand and really think about the colours.
How To Build Your Love Heart Layered File
I have suggested an order on the 3 files which makes sense and the layers are numbered accordingly. However you will need to fit any contoured layers after layer 2, I suggest lining up first to ensure you have the order right.
Start by placing the back Valentines Love Heart SVG layer face up, and sticking foam pads to the back of your layer 2
Now flip the layer over and position onto the back layer, making sure it lines up. Keep going layer by layer until you get to the top layer, I attached the top layer with glue.

This was made using the left over cut outs of the hearts on my Glowforge. I figured they were too cute not to re use, thus I grabbed a card, some glue and pretty paper and came up with this simple but pretty design.
