SWALK Hugs in a K-card

Hello all! Here's a great project I just made using my Ultimate tool, wonderful SWALK stamps and beautiful papers from Crafter's Companion!

Here's a great and easy to make card technique that uses the Ultimate Tool called a K-fold card. It uses two sheets of paper. The technique is shown on the Ultimate Tool DVD Video Tutorial. In the tutorial, Sara is using sheets of paper that are 8.5x11", but the card I am showing here, I am using paper that is 8.5"x5.5". This size of paper is often typical for cards and works great for this technique!

I used wonderful paper sold by Crafter's Companion. One sheet of white cardstock and one sheet of beautiful shimmery purple cardstock I started by selecting a wonderful SWALK stamp set called "Hugs."

The directions for folding and creating the card are given on the DVD. The photo to the right of the card shows one color of the cardstock used (white) and the main image, as well as a saying on the bottom , "Just to say." I cut out the image using Spellbinder's nestabilities in oval shape.

The image on the left shows the card when it opens up on the inside, you can see the beautiful shimmery pearlescent paper in purple (which goes wonderfully with the orange cardstock. The image on the left shows the fourth panel in which I used an "I {heart} you" stamp and added some wonderful stickles inside it.

Below is a detailed photo of the SWALK stamp that shows the coloring done on the SWALK stamp using Copic Markers.
This image would bring a smile to anyone's face. As you open the card, this image will go from being on the front of the card to being in the inside of the card. The DVD is a wonderful tutorial with lots of great ideas for projects you can do with your Ultimate Tool.

Cheers, Holley
