Lucky Clover Specimen Art

I’ve always liked specimen art pieces, but I’ve never made one of my own. When I received the nesting clover die from Lifestyle Crafts as part of their new Spring 2012 Core Collection, I decided to finally make my own specimen art – the Lucky Clover Specimen Art.

The nesting clover die has a variety of sizes.

I chose the very smallest and cut out 49 clovers from a variety of papers. I had a 12”x12” frame, and I used a white 12”x12” piece of cardstock as the background.

It worked out that each clover is spaced 1.5” from each other, so first I marked on the paper every 1.5”.

Next I stuck a dimensional glue dot on each of my pencil markings.

Then it was as simple as placing a paper clover on each of the 49 glue dots to finish it off.

Tada!
