Celebrate this Mother’s Day with a custom 3D layered card cut from your Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2. This mandala-esque card is quick and easy to put together and can be customized with mom’s name. There are three card types available. One knock-out text, one raised text and one without text. You could even make these for Valentine’s Day!
These cards are really easy to make and put together. All you need is a few pieces of cardstock, your Cricut machine and your scoring tool. Let your machine do all the work for you!

HOW TO MAKE YOUR MOTHER’S DAY CARD
If you’d rather watch a video on how to make it step by step, take a look at this video here (highly recommended!):
STEP 1: GET THE FREE SVG FILE
Get the free SVG design file from the free resource library.
STEP 2: UPLOAD YOUR DESIGN INTO CRICUT DESIGN SPACE
Open up and upload the file into your Cricut Design Space
Here is what it will look like in Cricut Design Space:
There are three different cards in this file. They are grouped. You can toggle between them by clicking on the “eye” icon.
Pick a card and delete the other ones.
STEP 3: PREP THE FILE
Ungroup the layers. Do it twice (there are two groups.)
Select the layer above the white layer. This will be a score line. We need to change the setting so the Cricut knows it needs to score and not cut.
Select this layer and change the linetype to score.
You should now see this line as a dotted line.
THIS IS IMPORTANT!
Now we need to tell the Cricut machine which layer it is going to score on. Select the score line and the white layer. Click attach.
Repeat these steps for the second score line (above the dark purple layer).
You know you’ve done it right when you see two attach groups at the top of your layers.
Now you can change the layer colours to match what cardstock you will be using.
STEP 3: CUT IT OUT
Click on make it to cut out your layers. Remember that the Cricut sorts the mats by COLOUR and not layers. Selecting your colours beforehand will save you a lot of time and headache trying to figure out what cardstock to put on your mat next.
Nice! You just made a mother’s day card. You can also use the other two cards included in the file to add your mother’s name on the card or you can make a card with just the heart pattern.
