Little Something Sunday with Rachel Hall

Quick and Easy St. Patrick's Day Cards

Materials Needed:
12x12 Kraft Cardstock
Green Cardstock Scraps
Heart Paper Punch
Rhinestones
Stamps
Ink
Fabritac
Bone Folder

To Make Clovers:
Using heart punch, punch out 3 hearts

Using bonefolder, make a crease in the middle of the heart

Using bonefolder, curl the rounded tops of the heart back. Repeat for the next two hearts


Using a strong adhesive like fabritac, adhere hearts together to create a clover


Cut a piece of green cardstock for a stem and adhere to the back of the clover. Add a rhinestone to cover up the glue and overlap of the hearts

To Make Your Cards:
Cut your 12x12 cardstock into 8 3x6 pieces
Fold them in half to create a small card
Stamp sentiment on card leaving enough room for your clover
Add clover to front of card

These make great cards for you to give to brighten up someone's day and to let them know that you feel lucky to have them in your life. They also work well for you to make with your children for them to give to their friends. You can also use the technique to create your clovers on all of your St. Patrick's Day crafts from cards, to altered art pieces, and of course on your layouts!
