Triangle Turnabout...

Hi! I love the Triangle Turnabout stamp by Concord & 9th. But lining it up is difficult and I have really struggled with it. This time I was determined to crack it and after some trial and error, I finally succeeded! I even included it in my workshop where we made cards with the Triangle and Wreath Turnabout stamps. Here is my first card.

I started with a 5½ x 5½ inch piece of ivory cardstock. I temporarily adhered it to the template and started stamping with Altenew inks. After each rotation, I manually adjusted the stamp to get good alignment. Once the stamping was done, I trimmed the panel. The smaller strip was made into another card which I will share later. I took a panel of dark pink cardstock and trimmed the sides with the Stitched Scallop Border die by Lawn Fawn. I adhered both panels to a top folding green card base.

The sentiment is from Birthday Greetings stamp set by Altenew. I stamped it with green ink on a panel of ivory card stock and added some pink with an Artists marker. To finish, I added the sentiment panel popped up with foam tape over a larger green mat. Here is a close up of the sentiment panel.

Another look at the card.

I am very happy with this card. And I am also happy that I finally managed to get a hang of this stamp set.
