A Small and Simple card with Doilies!

One of my favorite products to use on a card is a doily – and I love the way that I can use the 4 in 1 punches to make my own cardstock look like doilies!! For this card, I first started with a round card base. I used the star template and the 901 butterfly punch to make the center doily with a piece of cardstock. I wanted to stamp an image in the center of my doily, but it didn't show up well with the cardstock color, so I simply used my fabulous Kreaxions circle cutter and cut the inner circle out! It was so easy to find the center, since the star template has the hole center already marked for you to pierce your paper! That is such great attention to detail! For the outer doily ring (that I attached to the back of the card), I used my 901 Butterfly punch ,the positioning parts and the B plastic circle stencil for outer circle punching. I measured and cut a 15 cm circle with my circle cutter and using the B circle stencil, I marked the appropriate places for punching. I punched around the edge using my 901 butterfly punch and the 5.6cm positioning part. I really didn't like the very edge that the punch had left, but I did love the butterfly edge, so I used my circle cutter again to trim off the edges. That tool is just so versatile!!
