Getting Creative for Valentine's Day

For our second Cricut project we decided to see if we could create a layered design from card stock for Valentine's Day. We chose image #1800685 from for our basic design.

Because the image has extra layers to simulate shadows and shading we first removed those in Adobe Illustrator. We also removed the floating hearts because once they were cut out of the card there would be nothing to keep them in place. The cupid's wings were also joined together to make them easier to cut.

The final design was uploaded to Design Space and resized to fit the size we wanted to cut out.

Design Space cut each layer out separately and then we carefully removed the pieces from our mat.

We are very happy with the final result! It is perfect for a Valentine's Day card or could even be added into a frame to create a picture or even a light box! has a huge selection of images for all your Valentine's Day crafts! 

We have also curated a special basket of images that work perfectly in Design Space.

Have you created anything using images from our website? If so we would love to see what you came up with! Please email your photos to
