“Thumb”body’s lucky!

Thumb body's lucky card The best way to spend St. Patrick’s day is spreading luck, right?  This is a great way to share your luck and spend some fun time with the kiddos.  These “thumb”body’s lucky cards were fun to make and quick and easy.

Supplies needed:

“Thumb”body’s thumb

Green paint or ink


Green scrapbook paper

A bit of green ribbon Glue or Gluestick Thumb body Cut some of the cardstock into 2 x 2 squares. Dip the thumb into the green paint and stamp 4 prints on the paper.  Add a stem, and cut around the “clovers.” Cut the green scrapbook paper into a 4 x 6.  The ribbon should be cut 2 inches long.  Add the ribbon to the front of the card with some glue or gluestick.  Add the shamrock on top of the ribbon.  Write (or print it out on the computer) “‘Thumb’body thinks it’s Lucky,” and cut this out for the front of the card as well.

Inside the card you can finish the phrase with anything you would like.  We added, “to have you as a grandma” and sent the cards to our grandmas.  You could add “to have you as a friend” or “to have you as a neighbor” and then you can deliver some yummy treats like these: with the card.Pistachio Shortbread Cookies
