SWALK- Friends Like You

Welcome! Today is my first official day as a Crafter's Companion Design Team stamper. Here's a wonderful card that I made for today using the Ultimate Tool, some beautiful pearlescent paper in purple (bright) and a wonderful set of SWALK stamps called "Friends Like You".

This card is called a three fold gateway card. The Ultimate tool has a great video, all the accessories you need and a handy little booklet to help you make a ton of different types of cards, envelopes and boxes. The card I made opens out into three pages.

The front page uses the adorable girl from SWALK feeding the bunny and the birds. I colored her in Copic Markers and mounted her on a diecut embossed frame.

The center fold in the card uses the first saying included in the set, "Friends like you" and the single bunny rabbit stamp.

For the final panel in the card, I used the remaining saying in the stamp set "are far too few" with two adorable little birds.

Here's another main photo of the card that shows all three panels.
