This tutorial is very simple, but (I think) rather cute - a Good Luck card decorated with a felt four-leaf clover.
You can keep the card super-simple...
... or add a pretty mini paper doily to "frame" the clover.
To make this card you will need...
- the heart template at the bottom of yesterday's post
- small pieces of green felt
- a green felt tip pen or coloured pencil
- sewing scissors
- craft glue
- optional: a small paper doily
Use the template to cut out four green heart shapes. Check out this post for tips on cutting out small felt shapes.
If you're using a paper doily now's the time to stick it in place. To stick mine, I placed the doily
face down on a piece of scrap paper and carefully dabbed it with a glue
stick. I then carefully
peeled the doily from the paper, lightly positioned it on the card (leaving space to write the message below it)
and pressed down to secure it in place. You could alternatively use pieces of double-sided tape to stick the doily in position.
Use small dabs of craft glue to stick the four felt shapes on the card as shown, so the four points meet in the middle. Try to arrange them so they're at a slight angle (i.e. so they're not pointing North, South, East and West).
Then use a green pen or pencil to draw a stem on your clover. If you prefer you can draw the stem before you glue the last (bottom) heart shape in place.
Finally, write "Good Luck!" underneath the clover. If you're worried about making the text central / neat, try writing the message lightly in pencil first to test out the positioning - then write over the pencil with your pen and erase the pencil markings.
