The Lord Is my Shepherd

As I mentioned in a previous post......An older gentleman from the area really likes the cards I make, and recently placed an order for twenty-four of my handmade creations. I'm planning to make four each of six different designs. They all have to be fairly flat for mailing (so as to not cost him extra postage), and fairly simple in design (so as to not take me forever to create in multiples).  Today I'm sharing the design of the fourth set with you... (Click to view Set #1 and Set #2 and Set #3)

BTW -- I'm probably the last person on earth to figure this out but.... here's a tip for heat embossing vellum without causing it to wrinkle: Heat it from the reverse side! Yep, it's just that simple.....and I can't believe I just learned that last week!!

What a gorgeous embossing folder! Thanks for the inspiration, as I have not made vellum flowers before. I think once I try, I might be hooked!

This is absolutely gorgeous, Esther. And what a fabulous idea to create more than just one at a time. Hey, while you're at it......right? Great job, as always, and thanks so much for sharing with us.
