my very first tri-fold card

I have just learned the technique to stamping a tri-fold card (a card with two flaps on the right and left) - i.e. having a series of co-ordinating stamped images on the centre portion, and on the overlapping right and left flaps. For proper alignment of the three images, the best method requires the use of a stamp positioner, and how easy the task becomes! Love the possibilities that this may throw up in the days to come!

This tri-fold card was stamped using the 'cottage' series of stamps in Art Impressions "Tryfold" range - the scenes are beautiful, especially for water-coloring.

Scene from the second flap:

Final image scene on the centre portion when both flaps are opened:

The very appropriate sentiments come from IO - Impression Obsession - Joy in the Journey clear stamps set.
