STEP 1: If using an envelope, measure and trace paper to be slightly smaller than two lengths of the envelope, so card can slide in easily. Cut the two sheets you want to be the first and second layer of card.

STEP 3: Trace the third sheet of paper for the layer inside the card.

It is easiest to close the card and trace the outer edge as a pattern. Cut and tape the back of the sheet; flip over, press and center on second layer.
