How to Change Cut Lines to Score Lines in Cricut Design Space

January 28, 2022

As of now, SVGs uploaded to Cricut Design Space will automatically import as a cut file. This may be frustrating if you often make envelopes or cards that require a scoreline. However, this tutorial will show how you can easily change those cut lines into scorelines.

To illustrate this process, we will be using a Floral Birthday Card from Digital Gems. There are several great greeting card templates available on Design Bundles that you can choose for your project.

To begin, open Design Space and upload the desired SVG. We have a great tutorial for you to follow on uploading SVG designs to Design Space if needed.

Step 1 – Select and Change Line Type

Start by selecting the item that needs to be changed to a scoreline. You can do this by clicking on the individual object under the Layers panel.

Selecting Cut Line Under Layers Panel

With the item selected, you can now click on the Operation tab on the top toolbar. A pop-up will soon appear that will allow you to change the line type for the selected object. Next, Scroll down and click on the Score button that is under the draw section. Doing this will change the cut line into a scoreline, which we wanted to achieve today.

Step 2 – Attach Score line

Next, select the scoreline and card template under your layers panel. After selecting both items, click the Attach button on the lower right-hand corner of the canvas screen. The attach button will bring both selected layers together.
