The Shabby Tea Room March Guestie - Week 2

It's the second week in The Shabby Tea Room, with me as a Guest Designer!
This week the theme is "Spring Is Near", and we're asked to draw inspiration from the photo below, using at least three of the colours and dry embossing.

I discovered a pretty neat trick, while working on this card. I embossed a piece of green cardstock, with the Herringbone embossing folder, and cut out the leaves by hand, so that the pattern creates the veins. I think it looks fantastic, and I'll make sure I keep this idea for future reference.


Supplies: cardstock: SU! (Soft Suede), green & brown scraps; papers: My Mind's Eye (Miss Caroline); stamps:PTI (Simple Sunflower); ink: Memento (Bamboo Leaves, Rose Bud, Cantaloupe); Cuttlebug embossing folder (Herringbone); lace: October Afternoon; sewing machine; border punch: EK Success

For the layout, I used the beautiful DS42 sketch below:

Hop on over to The Shabby Tea Room for more inspiration, and to link up your entry! Thanks for your comments! Peace out,


  1. So happy to see your work at the Shabby Tea Room! What a beautiful card (as always!) Great take on the inspiration - love the woodgrain with those fabby flowers and all the lacy goodness!

  2. That's a cool idea. Going to give it a go. The card has so much eye candy!

  3. Chupa, love your woodsy card with a pop of spring color and what a fab trick with the leaves too! :)
