I have zero percent Irish in my family line- but I am still a sucker for anything shamrock related. St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday that seems to come and go so quickly- but I can always find a use for a “good luck” shamrock card. Sporting events and try-outs, graduations, a new job, even a post-holiday-season diet (are you feeling me?) can be occasions to wish a special someone lots of luck.
This card is an easy one. A sparkly one. And a good one to keep on hand to show your support when it is appreciated. Shamrocks. They are not just for St. Paddy’s Day!

Begin your shamrock card by preparing your clover embellishments. From green Glitter Silk paper, punch or cut shamrock shapes. The shamrocks shown measure .75″. Or you could skip this step and opt the really easy route with these stickers: Foamies Glitter Shamrock Stickers.
Stamp, computer generate, or hand write your tag.
That’s it! A simple shamrock card for St. Patrick’s Day, or any other event, warranting crossed fingers, well wishes and “Lots of Luck.” If you’re looking to send a little gift along with your shamrock card, consider making this DIY etched glass shamrock mug. Fill it with candy and treats, what a nice sentiment!
