Four leaf clovers are lucky, right? I created this easel card with hearts and a Shamrock Blessing to bring luck to a special Irish friend of mine.

TIP: A fun way to add interest to any size card is to make it an easel card. Cut any size card and fold the top part of the card in half with the bottom half down (a mountain fold.) Cut another piece of cardstock the same size as the front of the card and attach it to the bottom half only of the folded front. Place a pop up element in the inside of the card to hold the easel card front up as shown in this picture:
It is easy to make a four leaf clover with Tonic Studio’s hearts layering set. I cut four squares of dark green cardstock and attached them to the square white card front. I die cut and embossed the medium size hearts from Tonic’s Traditional Hearts Layering Set out of light green cardstock. I also die cut and embossed four of the smallest hearts out of dark green cardstock and attached them forming a four leaf clover. I printed the Irish Shamrock Blessing off the internet, cut it out with one of the scalloped squares dies in the layering set and attached it in the inside of the white square card. I die cut and embossed one more little heart and raised it up with a pop dot to hold the easel card front up.
TIP: I find the best finishing touch for most of my cards is to add Nuvo Crystal Drops. They are self leveling and form perfect little rounded embellishments to complete the card beautifully. I added Woodland Green Crystal Drops to the corners and center of the front and to the little heart pop up to complete my four leaf clover easel card.
