Ruffled bliss, envelope

The envelope has some lace tags inside. Some are heart shapes , others square
Really lovely
Atop the envelope which has card-stock as a base, see the ruffle I made.
I do have a video of the process in my YouTube channel
The ruffle is an old idea, but I like to bring back some of the goodies at times
You know 'Oldies but goodies'
I think I wax nostalgic !

ruffles and lace
