Deepest Sympathies

Today's card is a sympathy card. It's always a hard card to make, but most especially when it it for a friend whose child has passed. No matter what age they are when a child passes it is hardest to imagine. Recently a high school classmate's daughter passed away. She was only 19. A  brilliant, beautiful girl, taken too soon. My heart and prayers go out to my classmate and his family.

Below is my card.
  Outside front

                Inside partially opened.

                                          Inside completely open.

All of the stamps used on this card are from Close to my Heart #D1199 Come unto Me

My card takes a full 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of black cardstock cut in half at 5.50, and one piece cut at 5.50 x 3 inches. Score & fold one half piece of carsstock at 4.25 inches and set it aside. Then score and fold the other half at 2 inches, 5 inches and 7 inches. Mountain/Valley fold this piece of cs. Score and fold the 5.50 x 3 inch piece in half at 1.50 inches.

Assembly is pretty simple at this point. Take the 5.50 x 3 inch piece of cs and adhere 1.50 inch flap to the back of the base card (5.50 inches x 8.50 inches) leaving the other flap free. Adhere that free flap to the other 5.50 x 4.25 piece of carstock, joining them as one long base of 22 inches x 5.50 inches. Now you can stamp and decorate as you wish.
