You may see the demo here. It works in browsers supporting css3 transitions. In IE the envelope is not visible, I certainly could have played a bit more with jQuery to reproduce a similar effect, but it’s not a part of this tutorial. Let’s start with the html structure: The idea is as follows (I tried to illustrate it in the scheme below): the #form_wrap is positioned relatively (top:0), with the envelope fixed to its bottom. We will need an envelope cut into two parts, the top part, visible over the letter (after.png) and the bottom part (before.png) partially covered by the letter.
