In the design software for your electronic craft cutting machine, size the four leaf clover to approximately 4 inches. Highlight it and use the software to create an outline of the image using the offset tool, at least 0.125 bigger than the image. Separate the offset from the four-leaf clover. Cut out two of the offsets using the watercolor paper. This will create the background.
Using the Rinea Woodlands Foiled Paper Variety Pack, cut out the four leaf clover, shamrocks and pot-of-gold in your preferred colors using the craft cutting machine on vellum setting.
Once you have all the pieces cut out, decide the foiled paper pieces that you want to emboss and run them through your die cutting machine using an embossing folder.
To adhere the whole shamrock together, I use the Creative Station, so that I can peel and layer the pieces like stickers, but any glue will work. If you are adding a ribbon, for hanging, adhere it between the two layers of watercolor paper.
Layer the large four-leaf clover down onto the watercolor paper backing, then place the shamrock and brown pot. Before placing the gold on the pot, use the craft glue to adhere the gold beads in place. Just use a dot of glue for each bead. Let dry before adhering it on to the pot-of-gold.
