Toddler birthdays are always so fun to create decorations and cards for! There are so many themes to choose from with bright colors and cute pictures. To help you create, I have made this layered block SVG file.
The blocks are quick to assemble and add letters or numbers to. I went the font Crispy Bananas on Creative Fabrica.

Once uploaded, I duplicated the block file 7 times for the letters I needed. You will do the same for whatever you are spelling. I changed the colors and kept them in a rainbow palette.
I also added in an oval and sized it to fit into the blank A6 cards from Bearly Arts.
For my letters I typed out my sons full name and resized the letters so they would fit into the block.
Once I had them sized, I ungrouped to individual letters - this is an option that Cricut allows you to do!
After they were ungrouped to letter - I added a slight offset to each one. I had to do this after the ungrouping so that the offset didn't stick together! I changed the color of my letters to match my block and I made my offset white.
Now, You can send to your machine. I cut everything out of paper but you can also use vinyl for the lettering if it is your preference.
I recently got an embossing machine from Sizzix and it has leveled up my crafts so much! I highly suggest one if you can fit it into your budget. I made this embossing folder (tutorial coming soon) and sent just my oval through to add some dimension to it. You can also use your debossing tool or scoring tool on Cricut Design Space to add to the card.
This glitter Washi tape from Bearly Arts is my go to. Washi tape comes in so many cute designs and is easily removable if you make a mistake. They even sell some at the Dollar Tree!
I just did two small strips as the first layer on the card. Then I glued down my embossed oval.
I started by sorting out my pieces by color so I had everything properly grouped and I wasn't missing any pieces.
The next step is to attach the back of the block (the piece with the humps) to the square - I attached these with a single foam mounting square. I love using these in projects to add height.
I then glued my letters to its matching offset piece and then glued these to the correct color block (I had everything monochrome).
I lined everything up first to make sure it fit how I wanted and then I attached with my craft glue.
I slightly slanted each block so it was bouncy and fun! You can change up the letters to say happy birthday or even add numbers for the child's age! So many possibilities for this SVG!
