Jami's Bike

Here is the second sample I did for Jami's swap. The top flap on this card flips up and then the bike flap folds down. Here are the instructions for this one:
Your card stock should measure 8 1/2 x 5.
Score your card stock at 3 3/4. When you fold along this score just fold the remaining portion down over your card to make the top flap. Super easy.
Don't you think the ribbon accent is cute?! I love the look of striped ribbon but hate the cost so I just used my 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain and my pink gingham and layered them on top of one another! The white greeting is heat embossed on the top flap to add to the card as well. That top flap reminds me of an awning when you use the slit punch to make a scalloped edge - again just a little detail to add! The only thing I wish this set had was a cute little flower stamp that could make backgrounds. However, I did find that my Simply Said set had a flower that worked perfectly!
Supplies Used: Chocolate Chip cs, ink, SW Marker, Regal Rose cs, SW Marker, Pretty in Pink cs, SW Marker, gingham ribbon, Versa Mark ink, slit punch, White Embossing Powder, Simply Said, Time for You.
