Free 3D Layered Giraffe – SVG File. This is a great little layered card stock project to create with an easy to follow photo tutorial below.

Why not try this layered project out on your Cricut. You could add in your own quotes or personalise with a name and frame it in a shadow box. Perfect gift for a new baby/child’s bedroom or this could even be made into a cake topper.

I have created this project because I love all the layered projects all over the internet at the moment that can be made on your Cricut. I’ve only just started designing my own SVG’s so please let me know if there are any issues with these files.

For a flat look, use adhesive spray or glue stick

For the 3D look, use foam pads in between the layers and the above glue pen.

(NOTE: Hide the foam pads under each layer by using small foam pads or cutting them to size so you can’t see them).

Settings:

Cricut settings

  • Resize the SVG to fit the paper you are using or move the pieces in design space to make sure they all fit on the card stock. I resized this project to 13.945cm width by 20cm height to get it to fit all on an A4 sheet.
  • The material setting for all the card layers
    • MEDIUM CARDSTOCK (80lb / 216GSM) – DEFAULT PRESSURE

NOTE: All machines are different and there may be better settings but these are the ones that have worked for me.

Reorganise the brown cardstock layer within Design Space to make sure it all fits on one sheet.

3D Layered Giraffe

For the Free 3D Layered Giraffe, cut all the layers out on a Cricut Maker. Shop our cutting machine collection at Cricut.com

Once all the layers are cut, arrange them as below:

First Section

  • Apply self-adhesive foam pads to the back of Giraffe Layer 2 and apply centrally to Giraffe Layer 1. (I found it easier for positioning to align the ears and horns together).

See the image below for placement:

  • Using the glue pen, adhere Giraffe Layer – Back Feet onto Giraffe Layer 3.
  • Using the glue pen, adhere Giraffe Layer – Tail onto Giraffe Layer 3.
