Today I am sharing my newest gnome, my Free Layered St Patricks Day Gnome SVG Files For Cricut & Glowforge. I figured my Valentines Gnomes were to popular I would do a few tweaks, make him green and he is perfect for St Patricks Day.
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. I love that my files have multiple uses! This makes my Layered Gnome perfect for St Patricks Day gifts, banners and cards as well as layered projects.

How To Upload My File To Glowforge?
If you are cutting on Glowforge, make sure you upload the SVG file to cut, you are unable to cut PNG files. ( However can engrave PNG files.) Simply click the + sign in the top bar, choose upload and select your St Patricks Day Gnome file. Now drag the file to the correct size and click on the image to select the cut or engrave option.
For this project with will need to upload layer 1 of your Gnome SVG and select 2 circles from shapes in the design area.
Now make both circles cut images, you do this by clicking on the circle in the left hand bar and clicking cut. Next make the gnome an engrave image.
Grab once circle on the corner and drag it to the size you want and position the gnome inside. Use the remaining circle to create a hole for a ribbon. Now send to print.
Finish off by spray painting and adding a ribbon. I used a layer of green spray paint, followed by silver glitter spray. Although I only lightly covered the engraved area as I wanted to keep that appearing slightly deeper.

Cutting Your St Patricks Day Gnome SVG On Cricut
When you send your Gnome SVG/PNG files to your Cricut to cut, ensure you use your brayer to roll the paper, vinyl or card to adhere to the mat. Movement will affect the cut.
Line up all the layers in design space, to confirm all files line up correctly and exactly the same size. Remember you are using 5 colours so have the card stock ready to hand and really think about the colours.
I chose beige card stock for the back layer for my gnomes nose, and glittery rose gold for the top layer for a sparkly effect, popping white in for the beard and two shades of green for layers 3 and 4 for my hat and clover. However you can swap this about and use any colour you wish.
How To Build Your Gnome Layered File
I have suggested an order on the files which makes sense and the layers are numbered accordingly.
Start by placing the back St Patricks Day Gnome 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’ve finished.
