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.
