Bon Voyage Circle Card

This Bon Voyage Circle Card is a hopeful reminder that people will start traveling soon.  I also made a Happy Birthday Circle Card and you can see it here.  The circle says “Viva La Vida Loca” and we should all be doing that soon!

I really like how this card turned out.  It is colorful and happy.  We all need a little of that now.  I classified this card as intermediate because of all the intricate cuts and little pieces.  But it isn’t that hard to make.

You will need:
        • Heavy 2 sided cardstock for the base
        • Various Cardstock scraps
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Download File
Paper Selection

I did this card in greens with a patterned paper too.  But you can choose any color you want.  The base card needs to be two sided because you do see a little of both sides, but not much.  As you can see, patterns would work well with any part of this card as long as the pen showed up.  Just don’t use too many patterns.  This would get confusing.

The small cuts require a little heavier paper to be crisp.  So choose at least 100 lb weight paper for the light green (used for the circle with letters).

Cutting the card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a black gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  I used my own font that I created called CMV ZigZag.  You can find out more about it here.

There are lots of pieces with very intricate cuts.  Be careful taking them off the mat.

Assembling the Bon Voyage Circle Card

First re-crease all the folds.  This is essentially a gatefold card so make sure it folds properly.

Then glue all the embellishments together.  Look at the picture if you have trouble. Once the circles are together and the glue is dry, attach the right half of the circle to the right flap.  Do not put glue on the left half or this will glue your card shut.

And your Bon Voyage Circle card is done.  Let’s hope we all get to go on vacation soon.  It fits in an A7 envelope for mailing.
