|In the next step in this animation, the opened envelope will fall downward and off the stage. At the same time, the card inside the envelope will begin to enlarge until it is to full screen. This will give the illusion that the ecard enlarges and then begins to play.|
At this point, the envelope is made up of three parts, the back which has the triangular cutout, the front which is a rectangle and the triangular flap. We want all three of these movie clips to move together as the envelope falls. To make our task easier, we can replace the envelope front and flap movie clips with a new movie clip that we can treat as one element. Our next step is to create this group.
