3D Mandala Letter ‘A’ – Free SVG Link

3D Mandala Letter – ‘A’ – Free SVG Link. Another great mandala project. This was a really fun project, I really enjoyed making this for my daughters room.

Next time I’ll try to hide the foam pads! lol

To make this project you will need:

Cricut Maker

Cricut design space

6 different colours of card

The cardstock used in this project is the pink colour spectrum pad from hobbycraft. It includes a lovely range of colours and 2 shimmery/glittery colours included.

(I am not affiliated with hobbycraft, I just love their stuff lol)

Glue stick and foam pads

You will use both the glue sticks and the adhesive foam pads for this project. On every layer except the very top one I have used the foam pads to give depth to the project.

(NOTE: try to hide the foam pads under each layer by cutting them to size so you can’t see them, not like I have done lol).

Use the glue stick to attach the shimmer/glitter card to the layer below. It has very small intricate cuts and the foam pads just wont work.

Green Standard Grip Cricut Mat

You could use blue light grip mat and it cut every layer fine until the top glitter paper. It then decided to move on the mat and screwed itself up! I was not happy wasting my precious materials. Don’t get me wrong it was a nightmare trying to get it off the mat afterwards but at least it wasn’t ripped into pieces lol.

Cricut settings

Adjust the SVG design to fit the paper size you are using – 20cm wide x 19cm length.

Material setting for the shimmer/glitter paper – SHIMMER PAPER

Cardstock Material setting for the other layers – LIGHT CARDSTOCK – 60lb (163gsm)

NOTE: there may be better settings but these are the ones that worked for me.
