Free Layered Camera SVG
About 'Free Layered Camera SVG'
This seven-layer camera SVG is free to download and cut on your Cricut or Silhouette machine.
It would make a wonderful gift for any photographer!
In fact, I DID make it as a gift for a photographer! I framed it in a square shadow box with some pretty pale grey patterned paper and then cut a border from silver glitter card to go around the edge.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo before I gave it away, whoops!
This file comes in SVG, DXF and PDF formats. If you're using a Cricut machine then you need to upload the SVG version into Design Space.
The layers on this design come together beautifully to create a 3D effect to the camera.
It gives the illusion that the camera lens is coming out of the design to take your photo as you look at it!
How to cut a layered camera Cricut file
This layered mandala camera SVG is seven layers in total.
When you assembling it, start with Layer 1 and then build up the layers in numerical order using 3D foam pads or spacers to add depth.
When I assembled the camera, I stuck Layer 4 to Layer 3 with glue instead of foam pads as I preferred how that looked, but of course it's completely up to you which layers you use glue for, and which you use foam pads for!
If you aren't sure how to make this file, check out this video tutorial:
I cut the sample you can see in the pictures at about 6.5 inches wide.
If you are going to go much smaller than that, you may wish to contour out some of the smaller cuts along the bottom of the camera of Layer 2 to make it easier for your Cricut to cut.
I have shown the sections to hide by highlighting them with red circles on the image below:
