Layered Nutcracker and Christmas Svgs For Christmas Crafts

These Layered Nutcracker and Christmas Svgs cut files are perfect for Christmas crafts and everything surrounding Christmas! I love Christmas from decorating the tree to Christmas baking, wrapping presents and Christmas crafts.
These Nutcracker and Christmas Svgs cut files have everything you need and are perfect to cut on your Cricut or Silhouette Cameo or Silhouette Portrait. Here you have a 5 layer Nutcracker, a layered drum, present, poinsettia and a bell.

This is a special collaboration with my dear friend Sarah from extraordinary Chaos. We have been friends for well over 20 years, have a successful Cruise blog together, and are both craft obsessed. So this is a great opportunity to create a project together. Not only will you get these beautiful files but you can also hop over to Sarah’s blog for her Nutcracker Alphabet!

Great for Christmas paper crafts such a Christmas card making, scrapbooking, door wreaths and christmas textiles! You can use the different layers provided in the Layered Nutcracker and Christmas cut files to layer up your nutcracker or you can back it with pretty patterned papers instead. The result is a 3 dimensional cut file with added depth.

I have given ideas for the colour of each card layer but obviously this is a guide only, you can do any colour you like!
If you want to back each piece a different colour you can too! Just cut the top piece number 1 in white and do other pieces by hand. You could also use the background layer and the top layer for a wooden veneer Glowforge template.

How to cut Layered Nutcracker and Christmas Svgs file the same size

To cut your layered svgs you need to make sure all layers are the same size.
You can resize the first one to whatever size you would like and then make sure the others are the same.
To do this in Silhouette Studio go to the transform panel which looks like bars in different lengths. Click on scale which is the icon that is a line with an arrow at either end.
You Can either resize by 50% smaller or put in your own dimensions.
To specify the dimensions go to the two bottom boxes. Click the lock button on the right to constrain the design dimensions as the image is not the same both sides.
To keep the same dimension but fit the page just put in the width size in to the top box with lock checked. It will keeps the same shape but fit it to your page or the size you would like.
I made my Nutcracker mine 10 inches by putting 10 in the bottom height box and pressing return and it fits to a 12×12 cutting mat. All of my other Christmas cut file elements were 3 inches but you can cut them any size you like.
Eveytime you cut a new layer do the same this way all of your layers will fit together.
