You've Got Mail and a Freebie!

I have got to brag about our weather today. I know...talking about the weather is passe, but seriously,  when it's been this long since you've seen a sunny day AND actually felt it's warmth....it's talkworthy. Today is an exciting day. Lol..

I made up a digital recently and decided to make a couple of cards with it. I've decided to send a card every month or two to my in-laws who are in a care home. I figure that getting some mail now and then would be nice. So one of these will go to them. Just a 'hi how are ya?' type of card. 

I saw a card somewhat similar to this (I think) on Pinterest a while back and hope I did it justice. I think she just had an envelope stamp to make hers, so I decided to make up a digital along those lines. First the cards:

The inside

The second card:
The inside

They're very similar, but I used "Just a Note" on one, and "You've Got Mail" on the other. I enjoyed making these. So simple. 

Plus, when I made up the digi, I also made up a stack of envelopes you can size (15cm X 17cm for a 5"X 7" card) and use as the background for your cut out envelopes. I used the stack in the second card, but just placed my own in the first card. I also cut the edge of the card front once I had the envelopes in place. It just gives a fun effect. But make sure you take the inside of the card into account when you place the envelopes.

And last but not least, here's your free Digi

These can be cropped in the 'format' section of Word. Then copied and pasted. I hope you enjoy these and do show me your cards if you use it! 

Also, stop by again to see the other cards and things I make. Leave me a comment if you have time. I love to hear what you have to say.

Thanks for stopping by,
