Hi crafty friends! It’s been a while 🙂  I am back with another card with Penny Black new collection “Secret Garden” with you.

Today’s two cards are using envelop image in the center of the card. And the envelope can insert images or something else using coordination die so I love it!

Here is the first card using the plant sunshine stamp set & coordination die and exquisite envelope stamp set & coordination diecarefree wishes stamp set and  #30-587 birthday bff stamp set (Dreaming collection).
