Leafy Trio

Hey there everyone!  Have you seen that Unique Laser Designs (ULD) offers many of their designs in cork?  The texture and color of cork is wonderful on it's own, but there are a lot of options for adding to these types of embellishments too!

For today's post I used the ULD leaves:

                                          W-1186L Leaves - Large (5pc Set) Approx. 1½" to 3¼"-cork

Here is a card I made using the cork leaf as is:

This look has a natural beauty and texture to it.

Next up, I made a card using Distress Paint, and embossing powder with a word stamp:

Here is a closer look at the leaf with paint brushed on the edges:

And then with the embossing:

This last example, I brushed the edges and just a bit over the top, with some Inka Gold:

The texture in the cork picks up just a bit of the gold....just enough to hi-light it......here's a closer look:

So when you browse the ULD store for your favorite wood embellishments, check out the cork option too....so many ways to use these pieces!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!!  Check back soon for more inspiration!
