Lucky Clover Congratulations Card

by Joanne James12. March 2015 08:05

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary and this week we have a colour challenge for you:

 

This week's card was a challenge for me in so many ways! I have no Irish connections so St Patrick's Day isn't a big thing for me, although I often make at least one project to celebrate and I thought these colours would be perfect. I decided on my design and really wanted to create a four leaf clover to tie in with a 'lucky' theme, however I couldn't make it work with my layout, so went with a three leaf clover and decided that for my card this would be just as lucky (cardmaker's prerogative ;-)). Here it is:

I made my simple clover leaf using the smallest heart from the Hearts Framelits set, and freehand cut the stem, then offset my sentiment, a combination of stamps using the 'lucky' from the Project Life sentiment set 'Remember This' and the 'you' from the Sale-A-Bration set 'Simply Wonderful'. One last confession from me - I actually used a sheet of Garden Green from the Regals DSP stack for my card - when I went to my folder, I had no Wild Wasabi - oops! The effect would be just the same with a Wild Wasabi polka dot paper though, so I went with it.

Do check out the gallery to see what the other members of the CCMC design team have come up with this week - we look forward to seeing your creations!

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Your clover is wonderful!  Ingenuity at it's best!!!!!  If I didn't know Stampin' Up products, I'd totally think this was one die!  I love the sentiment you put with it too!

I love your clover, and I am so impressed with the handcut stem section!  I like seeing the polka dots in the negative area!  Great card!
