SWALK - New Release!


This darling image is one of several new S.W.A.L.K. stamps being released today by Crafter's Companion!

The image is colored with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Pens. I used the amazing Ultimate Tool to make this fun fold card.  Here is how I made it: 

Paper Pieces:
~Base Card:  6" x 12" 
~Two coordinating printed paper pieces cut 5 3/4" x 2 3/4"
~One coordinating printed paper cut 5 3/4 x 5 3/4
~Embellishment pieces (stars, 1/2" x 5 3/4" stripe)
~Image piece with another piece cut the exact size for the greeting on the inside of the card
~Matting for image is cut 1/4" larger than image piece (CUT 2 - one for inside of card)
~Double Matting is cut 1/4" larger than the above piece (CUT 2 - one for inside of card)

Spectrum Noir colors:
Faces: FS1, FS2, TN2, CR3
Hair: TN2, TN4, TN7
Boat: TB1, TB2, TB3, TB4 and a bit of IG2 for shading
Dress: CT4, CT1
Grays: IG2, IG1, IG4
Greens: CG2, DG3, CG4
Ducklings: GB4, CT4, GB8
Water: BT1, BT2 - glitter

Step-By-Step:


Base card scored at 6"


Base card also scored at 3" 


Fold card at 6" to make card base.
Fold front flap up at the 3" score line.


Adhere the image to front flap 
(be sure adhesive is only on the left half of the image back)


Hide the greeting piece directly behind the image piece
Adhere greeting piece inside the card.


Add desired embellishments and color image


I hope you enjoyed this fun fold tutorial using the Crafter's Companion Ultimate tool.  You can find many more samples colored by me over on the Spectrum Noir website!

Have a colorful day!
