Valentine’s Day is around the corner and love is in the air already. It’s time to get inspired and decorate our home even if it’s just a spot like a mantel or something. I’m keeping my mantel tradition so I’m working on different crafts to make it pretty. Today I’m sharing this cute and super easy to make layered heart pattern Valentine’s Day frame.

DIY Layered Heart Pattern Valentine’s Day Frame + Cut File

I love this frame with all my heart. If you have been around for a while you probably noticed already LOL. The possibilities are endless. Love that I can make layered crafts or 3D shapes in it. You will probably see a lot more crafts with this frame in the feature!

So, let’s start making this cute Layered Heart Pattern Valentine’s Day Frame.


  • White cardstock
  • Red cardstock.
  • Glue and gold glitter.
  • Foam double-sided tape.
  • Cutter or scissors.
  • A 3D frame.

First thing I did was creating the design using the frame’s measures. I represented the empty hearts as red since that would be the color that would be behind. Used gold{ish} color to represent the gold glitter heart. And the gray lines for the white hearts.


I made a copy of the design and converted everything in simple lines, all in black. Remove any grouping or compound path so I could export the design as a .dxf file. This type of file is accepted by Silhouette Studio.

I opened my Silhouette Studio and opened the .dxf file.


I gave the design style again just so I don’t forget what is what.


Then I divided the design into two. One with all the hearts that would be layered and the other that would have the hollow hearts and the “I” and “U” letters. This last one I added a squared line with the exact measures of the inner area of the frame.

and you can also download the printable version HERE


Sent to cut one design at a time.


Look how cute the hearts look!!!!


So, ok it’s time to assemble the pieces.


I cut a frame to use around the red cardstock. This piece should be the same size as the sample page that comes with the frame. Set this aside.


I took my white cut cardstock and recreated the design with the hearts.


Then using the double-sided tape I place each heart in place. I wanted them really separated from the base, so used double tape LOL.


I went one by one making sure they kept the line straight.



Then for the last heart, I applied regular glue, spread with my fingers and spread some glitter!!!!!! I let it dry for a few minutes.



I went back to the red cardstock. Carefully I applied double-sided tape in the corners and different places making sure not to put any take where the hollow hearts would be.


Again carefully, I placed the heart pattern on top of the red cardstock as centered as possible.


When gold heart was dry, I applied some tape and put it between the “I” and “U”.



The design is ready!!!!


Time to put it in the frame facing down. I closed the frame and voila!!!




I LOVE how it turned out! It doesn’t take too much to make and it really makes your mantel or any table stand out!
