Doubling up on your sentiments - Altenew Circle Greetings: Thanks die

Altenew Altenew dies altenew ink blending tool Altenew sentiment strips 2 altenew stencils circled greetings circled greetings: thanks ink blending thanks

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team.  When I finished this card, I wasn't quite sure what to call the technique. So doubling up your sentiments seem to work because the sentiment on the front continues and doubles up as a sentiment inside the card too! It's not often that I put a sentiment inside the card, but when I saw the Altenew Circled Greetings: Thanks die, I thought it would be great for a window card. So, why not continue the sentiment inside the card. Let's get started!

Written and photos Doubling up on your sentiments: 

Using a circle from the Hero Arts Nesting Circles die, combine a large circle die with the Altenew Circled Greetings: Thanks die and cut this out of Gina K Slate cardstock. Layer these up with liquid glue to create a dimensional sentiment. 
In addition, die-cut just the Altenew Circle Greetings: Thanks die from a white card base. Using a pair of scissor snip the white thanks off from the card base. Next, position and align the layer thanks grey circled die-cut and adhere with liquid glue over the circle opening. You can add a little texture of the white card base, by scoring horizontally at 1/2 inch up the card.
 For the inside of the card, position the Altenew Halftone stencil over the inside of the card base. Using an Altenew Ink blending tool, blend a soft orange ink over the top and create an ombre look with a soft yellow at the bottom. 
 
Next, on the inside, add a small amount of repositionable tape to the back of the grey 'thanks' die cut. Position the white thanks you snipped off earlier on to the back. Add small dabs of liquid adhesive to the back of the white die-cut, shut the card close and peel the grey die cut off the white. The white thanks should now be adhered to the inside of the card and lines up with the front sentiment when shut. 
Place the card closed in your MISTI and stamp a sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips 2 stamp set in the opening of the window on the card. Lastly, finish off white a few acrylic clear bubbles with liquid adhesive.
