In general people consider the four-leaf clover as a symbol of good luck. Luck also applies to love. Some clovers have these slightly heart shaped leaves, which make it a romantic plant. For this love card, I designed a four-leaf clover in red, the color of love. You could also call it a love clover.
Do you think you’re lucky in love? Are you happy in your relationship? You can craft this card to let him/her know how much you appreciate it.
You can craft this card for any romantic occasion. Whether it’s for Valentine’s Day, your anniversary or a random moment to celebrate your love.

In this photo tutorial you’ll learn step by step how to create this Love clover card.
Step 1: Take a sheet of white paper and fold a small part of it. Draw a half heart shape from the fold.
Optional: If you want to go for that “papercut” effect, draw a heart shape inside the heart shape itself.
Step 2: Cut out the heart shape with a scissors. Again, if you want to go for that “papercut” effect: cut out the inner heart shape first.
Step 3: Unfold the heart shape.
Step 4: Take the sheet of white paper again and remove the folded area. Fold the white sheet of paper twice.
Step 5: Put the heart shape on top of the folded area and trace it with a pencil. Note: It’s not required to trace the inner heart shape.
Step 6: Cut out the shape with a scissors while keeping the paper folded. Unfold the clover shape.
Step 7: Trace the clover shape with a pencil on a sheet of red paper.
Step 8: Draw a stem between two clover leafs.
Step 9: Also trace the inner heart shapes if you’re going for the “papercut” effect.
Step 10: Cut out the clover shape with a craft knife. If you’re aiming for the “papercut” effect: cut out the inner heart shapes first.
Step 11: Remove visible pencil traces with an eraser.
Step 12: Take a blank greeting card and unfold it.
Step 13: Use clear stamps to write the text “Lucky in love” on a stamp press or acrylic block.
Step 14: Use a black ink pad then to ink your stamps well. Stamp the text on the blank greeting card.
Step 15: Then put foam pads on the backside of the clover shape. Attach the clover shape to the greeting card.
