Best Friend

Happy Easter to Everyone!

Today I am going to show you the steps for the parts of the Best Friend card where I used the Kreaxions tools. I loved working with the punches and doing double punches create a lace accent. If you want to know more about the parts of the card not discussed in this post feel free to ask in the comments and I will be more than happy help.

Kreaxions Tools Used

How To Make The Lace Accent


  1. Cut a 4” x 1 ½” strip of cream paper
  2. Line up the Kreaxions 307 Punch using insert A
  3. Slide the strip to the right and align the pattern so only half of the pattern is visible and make the punch
  4. Repeat step 3 until you have a total of 4 punches
  5. Use a pencil and draw lines halfway between each of the flower punch on the back of the strip of paper
  6. Turn the punch upside down and and align the sinter of the flower along the lines and punch at each line
  7. Use scissors to snip away the bottom if needed

Optional Step

  1. Add a little shadow of the edges using the a color similar to the background you are going to attach the accent to

How to make the Butterflies


  1. Find a pattern butterfly stamp that you like
  2. Stamp a section of light blue paper using a slightly darker ink than the paper 
  3. Turn the Kreaxions Punch 604 Butterfly upside down and line up with the pattern and punch it
  4. Repeat previous step to create a second butterfly
  5. Use a finger from under each wing to roll a curve into each wing

Optional Steps

  1. Instead of a pattern butterfly stamp you could use a patterned light blue paper of your choice
  2. Add a little shadow of the wings using the same color you use to stamp the butterfly
  3. Apply a little Inkssentials black Enamel Accents to the body and head of each butterfly
  4. Set them assign to dry (takes about 2 hours)
  5. Once they have dried you can apply them to the card
