This St Patrick’s Day, celebrate by making DIY cards for friends and family featuring clovers, rainbows, and lots of green. With some luck, you’ll have some handmade greeting cards that will make others green with envy.
If you can’t be there to look for that pot of gold, send a little Irish luck instead with a festive St. Patrick’s Day greeting card. It may not be your typical day to give cards, but who really needs an occasion to send a little green pick-me-up to your loved ones?
You can look to leprechauns, rainbows, golds, greens, and clovers for some inspiration. I’ve made a few cards below. You can watch the crafty tutorial below or over on YouTube.
Here are DIY St Patrick’s Day Greeting Cards To Make You Green With Envy
Lucky You card
I blended green distress inks on my cardstock. Then I use this ornate metal die to cut cut out a background piece to go over top. I made a strip of vellum, then I used this lucky word die to cut out my sentiment out of glitter paper. I then adhered these gems over top for added sparkle.
Rainbow Leprechaun card
I used this masking tape to mask off stripes. Then I blended distress inks in rainbow order. I then cut a circle out of my card front. I stamped and colored this leprechaun onto a back panel so my rainbow panel was now a window panel. I heat embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set and added these clear sequins. I trimmed down the panel and added it to a fog gray notecard.
Leprechaun Shaker card
I cut a square window front panel. Then I colored in the back panel so it would should through the square. I used this St Patrick’s Day stamp for all of the images. I then made my shaker window with foam tape and acetate. I used these fabulous gold sequins for the shaker card. Then I stamped a leprechaun and St Paddy’s day sentiment to finish the card.
Good luck card
I blended more distress inks in a color combination inspired by Kristina Werner. Then I used this strong double sided tape on the panel. I then used this brush to add these gold gilding flakes to where the tape was. I then heat embossed my Good Luck sentiment from this stamp set. I like how the heat embossing was messy so I just went with it.
