To make this 3D Mandala Silver Owl – Layered Free SVG project you will need:

Cricut Maker

Cricut design space

Cardstock

White Cardstock for background – https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/white-card-a4-100-pack/650983-1000

Black Cardstock for inner eye – https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/grey-coloured-paper-pad-a4-24-pack/650960-1008

Lilac cardstock for eyes and feet – https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/purple-premium-card-a4-50-pack/626609-1011

Silver Cardstock for top layer – https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/silver-foil-paper-pad-a4-16-sheets/650572-1001

Adhesive Spray

I used adhesive spray for this project. This gives a flat kind of look to the project.

(NOTE: Open the window and cover the workspace whilst using this. The spray smells really strong and even though I had a A3 pad covering my workspace it still got everywhere lol).

The adhesive spray that was used for this project is not showing online but it was purchased from Hobbycraft instore and it is called ‘Permanent Adhesive Spray 200ml’

Adhesive Foam Pads

For a more 3D look I used foam pads in between the layers. (NOTE: try to hide the foam pads under each layer by cutting them to size so you can’t see them). Link:

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

Blue Light Grip Cricut Mat

I used the blue light grip mat for all the layers.

Settings:

Cricut settings

I made the SVG smaller to fit the paper I had – 20cm wide x 18.5cm length.

Material setting for all cardstock – LIGHT CARDSTOCK – 60lb (163gsm)

Material setting for silver cardstock – HEAVY CARDSTOCK – (250GSM)

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