This card idea came from a lady on the stamping cruise (sorry, I cannot remember her name). She had some awesome animal stamps and was trying to stamp them onto cork that she had. When I got this stamp set from Sparkle and Sprinkle and saw the zebra, I knew I had to make a card using cork. The card is pretty basic: emboss the zebra using black detail embossing powder onto an adhesive cork sheet. Then use the EK Success plaid edge punch #54-40089 for pieces of black cardstock glued all around the edges and a craft cardstock base. I wanted to add more embellishments, but I think it looks good just as it is.
The second card idea came from watching Gina K videos where she was doing split negative cards. I took it one step further and did 4 pieces instead of just 2. The basic idea is to stamp your design onto black paper and emboss with white embossing powder. Then stamp the design again onto white paper and emboss with black embossing powder. Cut the 2 images in half and place half of each one with the other. Kind of like a mirror image. I used “boa” yarn to edge the image and placed it onto green corregated paper then onto black cardstock to finish. Its kind of an optical illusion card!
