How To Upload Your PNG Printable Gingerbread Alphabet Letters And Numbers To Cricut Design Space.

I will use our flamingo letters but the principle is the same. Start by clicking upload in the bottom left hand corner of Cricut Design Space, a box will appear where you can select browse files. Now find your download file and choose the PNG folder, these are the files you will need for design space.

Select the printable Gingerbread man PNG Alphabet letters or numbers you require one at a time. When you choose a letter you will see the box below. Simply select complex and click continue in the bottom right corner.

Next you’ll be taken to a screen where you can remove the back off the file. However I have done this for you, just click continue in the bottom left corner. Now you will get the choice to save your printable alphabet as a cut file or a print then cut file. You must save as print then cut.

Now bulk select the letters and numbers for your Print and Cut Christmas project to pull into Cricut Design Space.

How to Make Your Cards

Start by creating an offset of your letter by clicking on the offset tool on the top bar. I choose 0.09 for a slight offset, then click on the offset and click the contour tool on the bottom right corner and remove all the contours. However, with letters with a space in the centre like o, p and a, for example, I would leave those contours in.

Create an offset on the letter

Now create a bigger offset of your offset layer and duplicate the offset before clicking to flip it so they are back to back. Pop the cards so they are touching and grab a square for the shapes bar on the left. Hover the square over the join of the letter, select all, and click weld.

Size your card together, ready to send to print and cut. Your gingerbread layer should be a print-and-cut image; your offset and card layers should be basic cut images. You can check this on the top left operation tab.

How To Print Your Print And Cut Your Printable Gingerbread Alphabet On Your Cricut

Once you are happy with your choice and sizes, click on the corner and drag the attached images until they are the correct size to print then cut. And cut the cards. I used glitter cardstock in green and red for the card, which worked really well.

Now click make it, which will take you to the print preview page. Select use printer system dialogue. You can then choose fine print settings through your printer. If you go through design space, the print quality is not always as good. If the system dialogue doesn’t pop up, simply reduce design space, and it will appear behind. You can now choose the fine print quality.

Also ensure you feed your card the correct way into the printer and press print. When you unload your printer avoid touching the black guide line around the edge of the printed imaged as I find this smudges easily.

Once printed, gently put the card on your cutting mat, I don’t roll it with a brayer as usual; gently press around the edge. But ensure the mat is sticky and the edges are well stuck down.

Cut Your Printable Gingerbread Card With Your Cricut

You will be taken to the cut screen, where you choose the correct materials for the project, I find glitter card works best for me with more pressure for the glitter card and heavy card stock for the printable card.  Also, ensure you put the printable on the cutting mat the same way it appears on the screen. Now press go on your Cricut.

If You Don’t Have Cricut ?

You can upload our Printable Gingerbread Alphabet to Canva, a great program for making posters and cards or Word or Pages. I have provided a set of Jpg files for use in these programs if you would prefer your Alphabet to have a white background.

How To Build Your Gingerbread Card

Use a ruler to create a fold in the card and attach the offset layer with glue.

Then attach your letter and add Nuvodrops to decorate and allow to dry.

When it’s dry, if you are making a gift tag, use a hole punch to punch the hole and thread through ribbon or elastic.
