A Standing Surprise

Here's an adorable Pop-up card using Crafter's Companions Ultimate tool, their newest SWALK stamps and wonderful papers. In a flat position, when opening their card or when you hand the card to your friend, they will not know what to expect. Here's what they will see when they first get their card:

When they "open" the card by pushing the corners down, it actually forms a wonderful free-standing display which shows the adorable little boy plus a hidden message!

Here's a photo showing the base once the card is standing and the surprise message hidden by the card.

This adorable SWALK set comes with the boy's image, the sayings and the adorable snail stamp. The cute puppy is also a SWALK stamp from the Best Pals set. You can use this image by masking the stamp and taking just the part of the stamp needed on the card. In this case, I just wanted to use the adorable dog because it went perfectly with my card's saying.
Doesn't this adorable image just melt your heart? I know he just makes me wanna put on some rain boots and go jump in some puddles too! I hope this creation makes you want to create something fun using your Ultimate Tool with the adorable new SWALK sets that just came out. Have a great weekend!

Cheers, Holley

Holley, I LOVE the little snail buttons you used. they are so cute and right away you get the message just by looking at the card, without it even being opened. I've wanted to try that ultimate tool, but just can't afford it. you're doing a good job with it! :)
