It is March and just two weeks until St. Patrick’s Day! Do you feel the Luck of the Irish? Well, let’s spread the luck to your spouse and give them a 4 Leaf Clover. This is the perfect and simple card to give your spouse for St. Patrick’s day.
Remember my Lucky in Love lotto cards? This is the same idea on one card. So gather your supplies:
- Lucky You Shamrock Card (there is my version and a blank version if you want to write in other things)
- Glittery cardstock
- Gold metallic paint
- Dishwashing soap
- Packing tape
- Bakers twine & button (optional)
Download the card, cut it out, and put clear packing tape over the leaves. Mix 2 parts paint and 1 part dishwashing soap. Then paint very carefully over the 4 leaves.
Since the writing was white, it actually only took me one coat of the gold paint to cover it. Let it dry completely – mine took about an hour.
Adhere the card to some cardstock – I went for glittery gold to make it more festive!
Completely optional, but I wrapped some baker’s twine around the bottom and tied a button on as well. Just a little something extra if you want – and I wish I had a gold button, but of course I couldn’t find my stash when I was needing the gold one.
Don’t forget to give it with a lucky penny on St. Patrick’s Day! It would even be fun to give to your kids with breakfast choices or another activity to do that day. Perfect for just about anyone!
