Use it Up #4

It was harder to use the organdy ribbon than I thought it would be and have moved on to something else, Felt Flurries. When I was trying to use up the organdy ribbon I pulled them out to use and have made many things with them recently and I used about half of what I had and am trying to finish using them. I guess another positive would be that I have been able to use almost all of my retired Holiday Treasures designer paper, Ruby Red cardstock, Circle brads and Earth Elements brads and buttons. My next few challenges will probably be about color instead on a particular item, I can use up more stuff that way.

I was inspired by many artists on Splitcoast Stampers by either their work or templates and CASEd (copy and share everything) many designs. Thank you to those whose name I don’t remember.
Vellum paper is a little thin for embossing so I would recommend vellum cardstock.

This is a money/check gift envelope. The black line is where the envelope has a slot to put the money/check to hold it in the envelope.
