This week’s file is a Lacy Circular Card. I love the circle shape for a card – it makes a nice change from the usual square and rectangular shaped cards and it fits into a regular square envelope nicely.
The unadorned version is above but you can jazz it up a bit more and depending what you do, it can suit any occasion.
I added a Happy Birthday medallion backed with the contrast colour and added a bow. I used the sketch pens but the medallion could be made into a “print and cut” if you prefer, and of course you can add any sentiment you like.
Have you seen the other circle card I made? It’s a cute smiley face perfect for the littlies – see the related posts at the end of this post.
Here’s the Lacy Circle Card for Silhouette Studio V3 (tested in this version)

Brilliant! I love your creations! Could you share what blade you use to cut your patterns? Also, the settings? I can never seem to get mine even remotely as clean as yours look – thank you so much for sharing!
I mostly use card stock and find it pretty hard on blades. I don’t think my blades last as long as someone using just vinyl or paper. Also, I find the plain card stock (as in this post’s sample – 210g weight I think) cuts cleaner than the textured Card ( I also use American Craft that has a linen texture.)
For both I use the settings for Textured Card stock which has a blade cutting depth of 5 and often double cut unless my blade is very new.
I use the CB09 Blades with a 45% angle. I won’t go into all the details here but if you’re interested and don’t already know about these blades, then these two blog posts below have all the info you’d need including where to get them and how to set them up. It’s quite economical compared to the Silhouette Blades.
Here and here
Hope this helps 🙂

es muy hermosa!!
You’re most Welcome!
l love this … is there any way to make this into a file that will cut fabric? Just the design no round border?
Thanks Wendy. What Software are you using to do it? In Silhouette Studio you would Select the design then Right Click and select “Release the compound Path” If necessary ungroup the design if parts are grouped together. Once that’s done you can just delete the parts you don’t want.
I can’t speak for how it’s done in other software though as I design in Silhouette Studio. Hope that helps though.
