I unfortunately send out way too many Sympathy cards. I love this one as it is like a card with a gift. If you want to make this card, I would request that you download the file to go with it so you can see the photos that show each step of making the card. It will make it go so much easier.

Base card: Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (a different pattern was used so you could tell which ones were for preparing the card) – cut to 8 ½” x 11”, scored at 4 ¼” on the SHORT side and 5 ½” on the LONG side
Turn your designer paper to the side that will be least prominent in the card. Place in the corner of your Grid Paper. Draw a mark on 4” on each side of the corner. Turn your paper 180⁰ and do the same to the other corner.
Place the designer paper on your Stampin’ Trimmer and line up the marks you drew and score. Do the same on the other flap.
Fold the flaps in.
Fold the card in half.
And, then in half again so it looks like these photos. The second photo is of the inside.
Decorative Ribbon Border for front: Very Vanilla Cardstock – 1 ¼” x 6”, punch it out and save the strip of leftover cardstock. Run adhesive down the inside of the front flap. Adhere the ribbon punched strip. Place a small amount of adhesive on the leftover strip and place on top of the punched out ribbon on the inside so that your adhesive will not seal the flap closed when you close the card.
Place adhesive between the two smaller bottom openings and seal.
