Tri-fold card - With Sympathy

I made this sympathy card for a family member recently.  It is a flip card - with a twist.  Instead of folding one piece of cardstock to make the "flip", the inside "flip" part is a second piece of cardstock.
This is the card folded:

The products used are:
Cardstock:  Mint Macron, Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede
Stamp Sets: Sheltering Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Love and Sympathy (retired)
Embossing Folder: Perfect Polka Dots (retired)
Framelits: Bitty Banners, Oval Collection

To make the front of the card:
Cut a piece of Very Vanilla 4 x 5 1/4.  Center the larger oval framelit on the paper and die cut.  Run the piece of paper through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.
Place the embossed piece on the front of the card front, and with a pencil, make a very light mark at the top and bottom of where the smaller oval framelit should be placed so that the oval cut outs align properly.  Cut the oval out of the front of the card.  
Attach the two pieces together.
Stamp the sentiment with Soft Suede and die cut using the banner from the Bitty Banners Framelit.

This is an inside view:

And here is the fully open  view:

The outer card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/2;  the inside piece is 5 1/4 x 8, scored at 4.

Use the stamp-a-ma-jig to align where the tree should be stamped so it aligns with the card's window. 

Looks complicated but it really isn't . . . give it a try!
