Designer’s Tip: Create clovers from 3-D Heart Dazzles™ Gold and pop up the edges of the center hearts to give them dimension.
- Emboss white cardstock with the Hearts and Dots Embossing Folder. Cut the embossed cardstock to 4”x5 1/2” and use rubber brayer to apply Mint Chalk Ink to the embossed surface. Ink edges and mat on Gold Ripple Holographic Paper, leaving 1/8” border. Place the card with the fold on the left and glue the embossed rectangle to the card center.
- Cut a “V” shape at one end of ¾”x5 3/8”, ¾”x4¼” green Geometrics paper and ¾”x4 7/8” chevron Geometrics paper. Glue evenly spaced and even with the top of the embossed paper as shown. Knot the ends of 1½” wide length of green crepe Geometrics ribbon and trim the 1¼” tails with a “V” shape. Place the ribbon ¾” from the card top and Zot the knot on the left side of the card as shown. Glue the ribbon ends to extend off the card edges and trim.
- Tag: Cut the top corners from 1¾”x2½” Gold Ripple Holographic paper. Write or print “Lucky Me!” on white cardstock and cut into a thin strip. Glue across the bottom of the tag as shown. Ink edges of 1 5/8” square of green Geometrics paper. Place 3 medium 3-D Heart Dazzles™ Gold to the square for a clover as shown. Cut a thin line of gold from the edge of the heart backing sheet for the clover stem. Punch a 1/8” hole at the top of the tag and thread with twine cording. Zot the twine ends under the ribbon knot and foam tape the tag to the card as shown.
- Inside: Mat the bottom edge of 5”x2” green Geometrics paper with 1/8” wide border of Gold Ripple Holographic paper. Glue to the top of the card as shown. Write or print “To Have a Friend….” On white cardstock. Place tiny 3-D Heart Dazzles™ Gold in the shape of a clover to the right of the text and cut a thin strip of heart backing sheet for the stem. Cut cardstock into a thin strip with a “V” shape on the left end. Glue even with the right side of the card as shown.
