Best Barcodes.

Best Barcodes is the name of the stamp set I've used for this card. Sometimes it's fun making a card with a different fold. So here goes my little explaination with photo's!!

Here I've scored Whisper White cardstock a little over 5cm from each side and then folded the card inwards so both edges meet.

I've made this embellishment which will sit on the front of the finished card. The little tag has been stamped with Best Barcodes. I've cut out and matted onto Whisper White, DP Loves Me and Pretty in Pink. The corners have been rounded with corner rounder punch. I've set an eyelet in the corner and tied some grosgrain ribbon to it. Then it's been finished off by using the circle punch to cut out a flower from the DP Loves Me. I just love this paper.
The two seperate folds of the cards have been matted with Close to Cocoa cardstock on which I've stamped the flower from Sweet on You; another stamp set from the Summer mini. Using a small circle punch I've punch random from the DP again and put into the centre of each flower.
Finally the embellishment has been adhered onto one of the panels of the card, so that it can open up. Here are two pictures of the finished card to give you an idea how both panels fold out.
