I’m part Irish and so I had to make a St. Patrick’s Day card! I have good news and bad news, though. The bad news first…the Lucky Clover Punch is sold out! The good news is that the Lucky Clover Stamp Set is still available, and the stamped clover leaf is super easy to fussy cut so you can still make those St. Patrick’s Day cards for your Irish friends and family members!
I started off with a card base in Garden Green cardstock and used the medium clover stamp to stamp all over the front of the card base using Garden Green ink. I made sure to turn the stamp so the clover would not be falling in the same direction, and I did my best to evenly space out the stamped images.
I used a print in Garden Green from the Dandy Designs 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper pack that measures 5-1/2″ x 2-3/8″ and matted this strip of DSP to a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock measuring 5-1/2″ x 2-1/2″. This strip was then adhered to the card front with the left edge of the strip sitting approximately a 1/2″ from the left edge of the card base.
The large clover image was stamped in Garden Green ink onto a scrap piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock and I fussy cut around the image…easy, peasy!
I used the Something Fancy Dies (my new favorite sentiment label dies!) to cut out two small tags – one in Basic White and one in Granny Apple Green. The sentiment “Sending Luck & Love” was stamped onto the Granny Apple Green tag. The two tags were adhered together using liquid glue so that the tag holes were lined up, but the white tag is showing from underneath the green tag. A length of Garden Green twine from the Three Twine Combo Pack was used to tie a bow through the tag holes. The tag was then adhered to the top of the card front at an angle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The fussy cut clover was adhered to the card front below the sentiment label using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” in Garden Green ink and stamped two of the medium size clovers in Granny Apple Green ink – one on each side of the stamped sentiment. A narrow strip of coordinating designer series paper was adhered across the bottom of the inside panel and the panel was then adhered to the inside of the card.
The same medium sized clover was stamped onto the lower left front of the envelope using Granny Apple Green ink and a piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed the excess paper away from the flap to finish up the envelope.
I love how this card turned out and I enjoyed creating it! It’s sad that the punch is no longer available but don’t let that stop you from creating your own fun St. Patrick’s Day cards!
