We’re Clover the Moon for Crafting
Introducing the latest addition to our ever-growing plant and flower collection – the Cardstock Wood Sorrel! I’m so proud of the beautiful flowers we’ve crafted here at Lia Griffith over the years, but there’s nothing quite like the excitement of unveiling a new design. This enchanting plant, affectionately known as the “lucky clover” due to its resemblance to the elusive four-leaf variety, promises to be a captivating addition to your spring decor.

Because crafting this Cardstock Wood Sorrel involves a variety of techniques, we consider this an intermediate-level craft. But don’t let that intimidate you! Half the joy of crafting lies in the challenge, and we’re here to guide you every step of the way. Once you’ve gathered everything you need, we’ll meet you in the tutorial.
While Wood Sorrel may be a new addition to our site, this charming perennial herb boasts a fascinating history. Native to Eurasia and North America, Wood Sorrel was once highly sought-after for its medicinal properties. And some varieties are even edible, with tangy, lemony leaves, making them a delicious addition to salads and herbal teas.
Though at first glance, Wood Sorrel flowers may seem small and unassuming, a closer inspection reveals their intricate beauty, available in a mesmerizing array of colors, including white, yellow, and pink. For our Cardstock Wood Sorrel, we chose the common variety, which features intricately lined white petals attached to deep green, three-clover-shaped leaves.
Bringing your Cardstock Wood Sorrel to life all comes down to your execution of the details. If you have a cutting machine we recommend using it for these dainty flowers and leaves.We used colored pencils to add subtle touches of color to the petals, mimicking the sorrel plant’s understated yet vibrant design. Next, we used a curling tool to give our petals a more natural appearance. Once completed, place your plant in a pretty pot as we’ve done here, place it on your window sill, and admire your beautiful work.
And remember, we’re equally as excited to admire your beautiful creations! Let your unique Cardstock Wood Sorrel Plant be a source of spring inspiration, and share your photos with us in our crafter’s community or on Instagram using the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
