How to Draw SVGs with Cricut Pens and create these fun coloring cards with these Palm Springs inspired SVG files!
If you’ve ever wondered how to draw SVGs with Cricut pens, you’ll be happy to know it’s a really simple process. Here’s what you’ll need to draw SVGs using Cricut pens in Cricut Design Space.
Here’s what you’ll need to make cards:
- Cricut pens (I used Black from the Ultimate Fine Point Pen set to draw and the Extra Fine Point Glitter Pen set to color)
- Palm Springs Inspired SVG Files – available for download here
- White sticker paper
- cardstock (for card)
How to Draw SVGs with Cricut Pens
Step 1: Download the SVG that you wish to use, unzip, and upload the file to Design Space. (If you aren’t sure how to upload SVG files to Design Space, see this post.)
Step 2: Delete any additional layers that you don’t want to use.
Step 3: Move the background (in this case, the flamingo) away from the text. Next select all layers of text.
Step 4: Weld all layers of text together.
Step 5: Click on the text layer to change the layer from cut to write. Choose the black 0.3 tip (or whatever marker you plan to use).
Step 6: Change the flamingo to write as well, with the same tip marker. Align with the text layer.
Step 7: Select all layers and attach.
Step 8: To cut the card, use the shapes menu (on the left) and draw a rectangle. I cut my card to 4×6, so I made my rectangle 3.5x.5.5.
Step 9: Select all layers and attach together.
No you are ready to draw and cut your image! Hit make it, and all layers should cut and draw as one image.
I drew and cut my image on Cricut’s sticker paper, but if you use white cardstock, you can stick it on using double sided tape.
The last thing to do is color the card (if you choose – it’s adorable either way!) This would be a cute and simple way to make pool party invitations!
And just in case you needed an extra dose of cuteness, here’s one of our new kittens, Sunny, checking out the card.
