Shamrock Layered Cardstock Project – Free SVG File – a great little layered project to create to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th. Why not try this layered project out on your Cricut. You could add in your own quotes and frame it in a lovely shadow box for a great St. Patrick’s Day decoration or a gift for a loved one / someone special.
Here’s a bit of general knowledge about St. Patrick’s Day, if you fancy reading it!
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated all over the world on the 17th March each year to mark the anniversary of St. Patrick’s death (Patron saint of Ireland). This information was found from www.history.com
St. Patrick’s Day observes of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, drinking and a whole lot of green.https://www.history.com/topics/st-patricks-day

Anyway, enough of the history lesson! Let’s get on with the project.
I’ve 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 never created my own SVG’s before let alone layered ones! So I thought I’d give it a go and share it with you all.
Please let me know if there are any issues.

For the 3D look, use foam pads in between the layers.
- Adhesive Foam Pads
- 3D Adhesive Foam Pads: https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/white-foam-pads-5mm-x-5mm-x-3mm-440-pack/565425-1001
(NOTE: try to hide the foam pads under each layer by cutting them to size so you can’t see them).
For a flat look, use adhesive spray instead
- Optional – Adhesive Spray
(NOTE: Open the window and cover your workspace, this spray smells really strong and even though I had a A3 pad covering my workspace it still got everywhere lol).
The adhesive spray that I used is not showing online but I bought from Hobbycraft and it was called ‘Permanent Adhesive Spray 200ml’
(I am not affiliated with hobbycraft, I just love their stuff lol)
- Resize the SVG to fit the paper you are using
- Settings for A4: 18.996cm wide x 19cm length.
- Material setting for all layers
- LIGHT CARDSTOCK
NOTE: there may be better settings but these are the ones that worked for me.
