Free Easter SVG 🌼 He is Risen Giant Sign

Make a detailed He is Risen craft project for Easter with this free SVG.

There are lots of beautiful elements to this design that come together to make an 18.5-inch craft project. The sign is left blank for you to add your own text to.

The cut file comes in sections so it can be cut from regular 12×12, US Letter or A4 paper on your Cricut machine!

Before you can use the file, you need to unzip the download folder that it comes in.

Upload the file called svg-easter-cross-sign-craftwithsarah.svg into Cricut Design Space.

This is how it should look after you have uploaded the file:

After uploading, the design will show in your “Recently Uploaded Images”. Click on it and then press “Add to Canvas” to put it onto your Project.

It might not open at the correct size, so make sure it’s set to 18.5 inches wide and 9.75 inches tall.

The bottom layers are in sections, so even though it’s 20 inches wide you can still cut it from regular US letter, 12×12 or A4 card on a regular sized cutting mat.

How to add your own greeting to the DIY Easter cross sign

The photos I’ve included of my finished sign have the phrase “He is Risen” on it, but that isn’t included as part of the SVG.

I decided to leave it blank so that you can add your own message. That way, you could add whatever greeting you want.

Before we start thinking about cutting out the layers of the sign, we need to add the greeting.

To add a greeting, click “Text” and then type out your words.

To cut the words on a regular cutting mat and A4/12×12/US Letter paper, you may have to type it so that each word is a separate layer.

Change the font to one that suits the design. I used “Double Whipped” which is a Cricut Access font.

To add a border to the words, use the “Offset” button.

Here is how my design ended up looking with my wording:

When you’re happy with how the project is looking in Design Space, click “Make” and follow the instructions on-screen to cut out all the layers.

To change the paper size, go into the dropdowns over on the left side of the screen and choose the paper size that you want to use. You need to change it for every single colour.

To save space on your cardstock, you can move things around by clicking and dragging. Make sure when you’re moving things about that nothing overlaps because otherwise, it won’t cut out properly.

Fair warning, it might take a while to cut! It took me about an hour to get all the different pieces cut.

Giant Easter cross sign SVG: Assembly Guide

The download folder contains an Assembly Guide PDF file. Have this open on your computer or print it out so that you can refer to it when sticking the design together.

I highly recommend taking the time to position all the layers in the correct order before you start sticking anything together.

Some of the flowers are quite similar in size so you don’t want to accidentally stick them in the wrong place!

Carefully move the layers away from the base of the sign, keeping the layers for each individual flower together so you don’t have to work out the order again later.

Step 1: Stick the base together

Glue the four base piece together. To line them up, place the triangles on top of each other. Each piece will overlap slightly to give a more secure base.

After gluing them together, turn it upside down and add sticky tape down all of the join lines to help make them more stable.

Glue one of the small white squares to the back to cover the bird along the top of the design.

Your base will have two circular holes near the top. These are for adding twine or ribbon through in case you would like to hang your sign up.

Add that in now, if you want to use it.

Next, use glue to stick the four off-white pieces together. Do NOT glue them to the blue layer!

Note: Your pieces will not have triangles on the bottom. I removed them from the design after I recorded my tutorial video, as they weren’t necessary as we are using the edge of the design to line the pieces up instead.

Line each of the pieces up using the edges of the base. They will overlap slightly in the middle.

Turn this piece upside down. Glue your other white square to the back of the cave opening.

Add foam squares to the back of the piece.

Make sure you put some in the middle, for stability.

Stick this onto the blue base.

Step 2: Add the background layers

Glue on the sun and cross pieces.

Glue on the four green pieces and then glue the brown rectangle that goes around the opening to the cave.

Glue on the four brown pieces, then glue the darker brown outline of the cross on top.

Glue the boulder shape to the outside of the cave.

Glue the darker green hills on, and glue the tiny yellow flowers to the top.

Use foam squares to attach the next green layer. I glued the pieces together first, using the existing sign as a guide.

Glue on the final green pieces.

Step 3: Add the wooden sign and wording

Glue the white pieces to the front of the sign.

Place the darkest brown pieces on the front, but don’t stick them yet.

Use them as a guide to see where to place your wording.

I glued the letters to their Offset borders and then used foam squares to stick them to the sign.

Use foam squares to attach the darkest brown pieces.

Glue the lighter brown sign pieces on top.

Phew, that’s all the “big” pieces done! Now we can move onto the smaller decorations.

Step 4: Add the details to the sign

Stick the cross pieces to the sign in the order shown below.

Then, use a combination of foam pads and glue to stick together all the flowers and attach them to the sign, following the Assembly Guide.

After sticking on all of the flowers, it will look like this:
