I have never really been a big St Patrick’s Day fan – let’s be honest green is not really my colour and well that whole pot of gold and leprechaun thing… Anyways that been said I am a fan of their beautiful Irish blessings. So in celebration I made this framed piece of art using a few of my die-cuts and a printed quote from my Silhouette.
Using products I have in my stash already for different things is quite important to me so when this heart and flower die-cut together formed the perfect combination to create a four leaf clover I was delighted.
Die-cut four hearts out of green Lady Pattern Paper for the leaves.
Die-cut a dandelion for the stem.
Cut off stem of the dandelion that will form the stem of the clover.
Combine your die-cut elements to form your four leaf clover.
Open the quote you want to use in your Silhouette software.
Open the style menu and click on the ‘fill colour’. Select the colour you want your quote to be printed in. Then click inside the lines.
Click on the ‘line colour’ and make the line colour the same as the fill colour.
Make sure that your page size is correct before sending it to your printer.
Print the quote onto white cardstock.
Colour a large background piece of watercolour paper using ink and paint.
Adhere the quote to the coloured paper and sew around the edge.
Adhere the die-cut elements to form your four leaf clover in the top right hand corner. Insert into a frame and enjoy.
