This design does require some layering and we will talk through that below as it’s different for iron on versus vinyl!

How to use the What The Elf SVG:

This design has 3 layers.  The Red is the base layer or first layer you will work with.  Then the light green and then the kelly green layer.

If you are planning on using iron on:  If you use everyday iron on you can cut and layer as is!  If you want to use glitter, holographic or foil iron on (any specialty iron on) it’s best that you slice the design as those iron-on types are not to be layered.

You can find a detailed tutorial on slicing here.

Cut your vinyl or Iron on and then weed the excess away leaving only your design.  IF using vinyl you will transfer to your blank using transfer tape and here are some tips for layering vinyl.

If using iron-on, I like to apply with my EasyPress and Mat.  You can find the recommended temperature settings for your easy press here.

When you are finished with your creation you will have a fun and snarky gift to give or enjoy yourself!
