Five Days of Handmade Christmas Cards - Day Two: Cork!


Welcome to the second day of...

Five Days of Handmade Christmas Cards!



If you missed yesterday's post, check out day one - Glitter - HERE!

Today, we talk about

Cork!

Cork isn't something that's used a lot in card making, but because of that, using it adds an element of surprise & charm.



To make the cork tree, I found a template online, cut it out & traced it onto the sheet of cork. Then I simply cut out the tree shape. The sheet of cork I used had adhesive backing on it already.

Adding some adhesive backed gems & a button to the top makes it look even more Christmasy!



Products used:
Cardstock - Michael's
Doily - Dollar store
Cork sheet - Michael's
Gems - Michael's
Button - Unknown
Baker's Twine - My Mind's Eye
Christmas Wishes Rub-on - Stampin' Up!
Stitching with sewing machine


The cork adds an element of nature to the card. I love the woodsy feel!

Make sure you come back tomorrow for Washi Tape!
