Using Cork!

Have you tried using cork paper? It's basically a thin sheet of cork. I bought a sheet of cork paper from Michael's a while ago. This is my first time to use it on a die cut! It is actually much easier to cut than on regular paper. I am entering this to the Moxie Fab World's Metal,Wood & Cork Challenge.

Supplies: Delicate Wings (Penny Black), Washi Tape, American Craft pattern paper, Leafy Vines (Hero Arts), sentiment is from Frankly (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps), sequins (Dollar Store), gems (Michael's)

I love the white embossing that the leafy vines gives on the butterfly. This card was easy to create since I have all the supplies readily in front of me when I created. Don't you just love that?
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Awesome butterfly and card design, Virginia. I bought this same cork paper at Michael's months ago and thought it would be great for die cutting ~ you have motivated me to get it out of the hoarded stash and actually USE it now ;-)
