Card Making

The Doily Accent

I see Doily shapes everywhere in art and I love it.

So I made one for my card with a Kreaxions 4-in-1 punch that I wanted to share today.  It took me a few minutes and I just love the result.  I will show you how I did it later in this post. My cut out circle is done with the Kreaxions circle cutter.

Here is a close-up. I punched it out of a Kraft colored cardstock and I added some brown ink to the edges with a Distress stamp pad.  The patterned paper is by BasicGrey.  The little butterfly is also a Kreaxions punch, I coated it with Glossy Accent after I punched it and I made sure the wings were shapes upwards as it dried.

Here is a glimpse as to how I created the doily.  I used the star template by Kreaxions. This is so handy, just trace it on paper and cut it out.  I then used the 904 4-in-1 punch without any of the additional plates.  I centered the punch over each of the points of the star and punched it.  I thne took my scissors to clip the little piece that joins each of the punched out pieces.
