Waving Hello and wishing you all a very happy St Patrick's Day with this easy card make. I’ve designed this one so that it can also be used as a simple ‘Good Luck’ card as it bears only the word ‘Lucky’. If you look carefully you will see it has 6 regular 3 leaf clovers and a special ‘Lucky’ 4 leaf clover to give a magic number totalling 7. So it’s a Lucky 7 card too, so that’s plenty of Good Luck to send to a friend.
Step By Step:
I took a Dovecraft 6x6 white card blank to use as my base
card with the fold running along the top.
From the 6x6 My Guy paper pad I cut a square of triangle geo patterned
paper approx. 5 5/8” square and adhered to card base using double sided tape.
To create the mat panel, I cut Dovecraft White Laid card
to measure approx. 4 7/8” square and matted it onto a square of First Edition
textured cardstock in green that measured 5 1/8”, to give a small border all
I cut the clover shapes using my Cricut Explore (My DS
link is here if you wish to use it: https://uk.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/37629120
) but these are simple shapes and easy
to draw a 3 leaf and a 4 leaf in pencil onto card and use that as your template
to draw around. (The leaves look a little like heart shapes so perhaps use a
small heart to help you). I cut the 3 leaf clovers from My Guy papers, 2
in orange, 2 in polka dot, and 2 in the black, grey, yellow pattern papers from
Using a Light Grey First Edition marker pen outline
around the inside edge of the leaves to give a subtle definition. Then glue 3
three leaf clovers across the top of the white panel and 3 across the bottom of
the white panel.
Using the FE Alphabet set, diecut letters to spell ‘LUCKY’
from black card and glue across centre of white panel, leaving space at right
for a clover.
Cut the 4 leaf clover from FE textured card in
green. Using Dovecraft glitter glue in
Gold, outline the 4 leaf clover and also outline around the green card
panel. When glitter glue is dry mount
main panel to card front at an angle using 3D foam pads.
To finish, add a
green adhesive gem to 4 leaf clover and attach to card front using a 3D foam
pad to give height, so it looks like you can just pluck the clover from the
