Garden gatefold envelope and cards


 Hi All, I made this fancy floral envelope with a SVG die cut from Bird at Birds Cards, stop by and say hello her work is gorgeous and she designs and offers these SVG die cuts free of charge!  I cut the SVG on my Zing and then hand cut the green liner beneath.  The card is made with an image from Crafty Secrets digital stamp set Flower Garden Set.  I took a few pictures so you could see how the card fits into the envelope.  I also wanted to show you how I changed it up using a Word tool adding the shadow to the card that says Love.  I shaded the edges in gray but the shading on the leaves was all done by a setting in Word.  I think it's pretty cool, I added the words to the picture using Word too, the cool font came with the digital set.  I also embossed the cards with a Stampin Up plate, I wish I would have thought to emboss the inside of the green envelope liners, that would have really looked cool.  Well that's it for today, thanks for stopping by and as always thanks for looking.  ~Diane
