Today I added a couple of fun cards as well as a basic 4.25” x 5.5” card base and a 5” x 7” card base. These both have layers that you can use or delete. These should help new card makers get started with the basics. Just open the file from the link on the Cardmaking page (see the column to the left). Then you can add your words, embellishments and decorate it right there on your canvas.
I also added some files for envelopes for your cards. To change the size of the envelope to meet your needs, group all of the parts of the envelope. Then insert a square and resize it to the size of your card. Now go to the envelope grouping and unlock the proportions (that little lock thing). Place the square over the center portion of the envelope and then adjust the envelope size to accommodate that card. I also have given you the link to my video on resizing envelopes.
There are also several free envelope designs available in Design Space.
