Instructions 

Saint Patrick's Day comes just once a year, but we can celebrate the exceptional good luck of having wonderful friends and family all year long! 

 

 

Wendy Vecchi Lucky Clover Card Step 1

Step 1: On a strip of Dina Wakley MEdia Stickyback Canvas Tape, make "lucky clovers" by stamping the hearts from Wendy Vecchi's MAKE ART Merci & More Stamp, Die and Stencil Set four times in close formation as pictured. The sample features five large clovers, stamped in English Ivy Archival Ink, using the larger heart; and six small clovers stamped in Leaf Green Archival using the smaller heart. Outline the clover petals with a .01 Letter It Fineliner Pen, if desired. Cut the clovers out neatly with scissors and set aside.

Step 2: Mask the interior portion of the teacup from the Beverages set of Wendy Vecchi's MAKE ART Chippies and stamp the small vine cluster from Wendy's Flower Pot Stamp, Die and Stencil Set randomly all over the rest of the cup in Leaf Green Archival Ink. Stamp a small heart in English Ivy on the smaller teabag tag, and lightly ink the small spoon with Watering Can Archival.

Step 5: Create a horizon line by adding strips of tape from Wendy Vecchi's MAKE ART Washi Tape Assortment 1 to the bottom third of the stenciled panel. Place the widest tape with lacy pattern at the bottom, the dotted tan tape above that, and the green checkered tape overlapping the seam between the two.

Step 6: Assemble the card. Affix the stenciled panel to a Leaf Green cardstock mat measuring 4 x 5.5" with Wendy Vecchi Perfect Card Adhesive. Add a second mat of Sea Foam cardstock measuring 4.5 x 6" and affix to a white A6 card with adhesive, or by machine stitching around the panel. Add the teacup just above the top of the washi tape, using foam tape. Add the large and small lucky clovers to the top of the teacup. Adhere the first few flat to the card with their own stickyback adhesive, then layer the rest above them, using foam tape. Tuck the spoon and teabag tag around the lower part of the cup and affix with doublestick tape. Position the sentiment strip across the cup.
