Using the same paper, stamp the sentiment in transparent ink, cover in white embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Die cut using the tag die. Cut a second tag and adhere the 2 tags back to back.

Adhere the door layers to the card base and tuck the sentiment label under the brickwork, tie with white twine. Add the second door frame on top of the first using foam pads
