Avery Elle December Release Day 3

Hi, everybody, welcome to the thrid day of Avery Elle release. The stamp we are featuring today is a punny valentine set - Knotty. 

I die cut the circles from the cork and stamped the knot on my first card.  I arranged the circles in different direction.  The background was stamped with the nordic lines images.  The cork I used is adhesive backed.  I adhered the cork onto the cardstock before die cut . 

My second card used the anchor image.  It was stamped and colored with copics.  I threaded some twine to add some texture.

Check out the rest of the DT for more inspiration.
