It’s a corker!

When the shop got these fab 12” x 12” self-adhesive cork sheets in I just had to have a play! With Father’s Day upon us once more it seemed like an obvious ‘manly’ texture to use. I wanted to see how versatile the cork is, whether you could use die cuts without it splitting or crumbling and how fine a die could be used on it. Here’s the quick card I put together…

It handled the thick Sizzix Original letter dies without cracking or crumbling.

I even used a little hand-held X-Cut corner rounder on it without any problem - there was no resistance at all!
Watch out for additional things you can use with this fabulous cork!
Have fun crafting and thanks for stopping by.
