25 St. Patrick's Day Sentiments and Short Quotes for Cards

Have a sham-rockin St. Patty's day.

May luck follow you today and everyday.

Sending my love across the rainbow.

Keep calm and get your Irish on.

My heart belongs to Ireland.

May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow.

A friend is like a 4 leaf clover: hard to find, lucky to have.

When I count my blessings, I count you twice.

Sending some Irish blessings your way.

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light.

Wishing you a pot of gold and all the joy your heart can hold.

Better by far, at the rainbow's end, to find not gold but the heart of a friend.

May good luck be your friend in whatever you do and may trouble be always a stranger to you.

Top of the morning to you.

So lucky to be your friend.

You're my lucky charm.

Everyone's Irish on March 17th.

You sham-rock my world.

You're my pot of gold.

Lucky to have you.

I can't keep calm, I'm Irish!

Bless your little Irish heart.

Kiss me, I'm Irish.

May Irish eyes smile upon you.

Keep calm and jig on.

7 Lucky Ideas to Use These St. Patrick's Day Quotes in Your Crafting:

1) The very popular phrase Kiss Me, I'm Irish is one you can have fun with. How about having an Irish green frog as your theme with this quote underneath?

2) Shamrocks are always a well used theme for St. Patty's Day cards and crafts. Just be aware that shamrocks have only 3 leaves - they are symbolic of the Holy Trinity. So the three leaves have a very special meaning which is directly associated to Saint Patrick and are much more applicable for a religious slant on this celebration than a 4 leaf clover.

I've seen some great shamrocks made from paper, crochet versions made with yarn and beautiful quilled ones too. Shamrock Craft Stickers are easy to use, just be careful to pick 3 leaf ones.

3) You don't need to just stick to greens as your chosen colors. The Irish flag is made up from orange, green and white which makes an ideal color scheme.

Pots of gold Irish themes give you traditional black and gold shades that work great with a rich green. And there is also the end of the rainbow theme which gives you lots of leeway with bright, eye-popping colors.

4) Any sentiments or quotations with Lucky in them can work well with a 4 leaf clover design if you don't want to use the more spiritual Irish shamrock. Or use a gold color lucky horseshoe symbol instead.

5) Leprechauns are special male Irish folklore fairy figures. They are far easier represented with a green top hat which is normally shown with a wide black band and gold buckle. Leprechaun hats are easy craft ideas to make.

6) If you're sending a heartfelt sentiment of love, green hearts are very appropriate instead of the usual red or pink ones. Another name for Ireland is the Emerald Isle because it is lush and green.

You can easily make your own green hearts with a Heart Shaped Punch, die cut or craft stamp used along with green paper or cardstock.

7) Heart punches can also easily be used to make your shamrocks or lucky clovers when using green paper. The heart shapes look like petals when arranged with the pointed ends in the middle. Use a strip of paper or length of ribbon to make a stem. And try adding a cute green button in the middle.
