Here's one more cork project! In addition to the incredible amount of static that cutting cork creates, here is a COOL benefit! If you cut the cork sheets to quarter sheet size (cardfront size) 4.25 in x 5.5 in. - you end up with a negative style frame! By "negative" I mean the part left over from the "top note" cut out.
This card is created on cardstock and you can really use white or any other neutral or color! I used Kraft as the color seemed to blend really well with the mottled tans of the cork. I cut a piece of dsp (designer series paper) from the Urban Garden paper and used the colors as my guide. The DSP gets adhered to the cardstock, and then adhere the cork frame over top! Wrap your favorite ribbon on it - I used the new Baja Blue wide grosgrain. T
he stamp set is from Punches Three, a level one hostess set that coordinates with the new punches (the scallop square and large wide oval). The image is stamped in Not Quite Navy (one of the colors of the DSP) and I've used a half pearl to accent it. The stick pin is also from the Pretties Kit. I just have to tell you - if you haven't bought the pretties, please do so! I can't believe how much GOODNESS is packed into! Really .... I've been using my kit for well over 6 months and it hardly looks like I've dipped into it! Don't let the cost scare you, you will find this kit lasts and lasts and lasts.
