Picture of Clover Weave Card
Another fun card for St. Patrick's Day!

This card was inspired by this card I saw just after Valentine's Day done by Kate over at minieco.  She is also on Instructables.  I love the paper she used on her card.  I thought I would take a stab at using her method for a clover card for St. Patrick's Day!

Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need
Time to get everything together!

  • Green Paper
  • White Paper
  • White Greeting Card
  • Sticky Squares and/or Double Sided Tape*
  • Silhouette Cameo
  • File**

*I used the sticky squares to stick down the green strips and then used the double sided tape for sticking the woven card to the greeting card.

**The Silhouette File is provided.  Also, if you don't have a Silhouette Cameo, I've provided the files in PDF so you can print it off on the green and white paper and then cut it out.  I would suggest an exacto knife and ruler if you do that method.

Step 2: Create Pieces

I know I just bore you all with how I created to file, so I'll just let you check out the images an let me know if you have any questions.  It's just all about lining things up and getting things spaced right.  There are notes on the images as well.

I will point out that for this project I changed the grid divisions and used "snap to grid" to make sure things spaced and lined up just right.  You can see this in the second image.
This looks like a fun St. Patrick's Day project for kids to do in art class. Very nice!
