Even if you have to nix this year’s Easter egg hunt due to social distancing guidelines, don’t let that dampen your egg-citement. You can still send your happy thoughts to your loved ones with personalised, handmade Easter greeting cards.
With a little over a month to order your cardstock and prepare your arts and crafts supplies, you have plenty of time to put on your creative hat and get to work. To help you get started, we’ve rounded up some cool examples of Easter greeting cards from templates and DIY projects you can work on by hand.
Have a Hoppy Easter!
Hop on over to Canva to customise this cute Easter greeting card, complete with rabbit ears, streamers, and whimsical handwritten font. While pink and white make up the card’s colour palette, feel free to customise it with the colours that best suit your Easter bunny’s personality. You can also replace the dots with eggs if that’s more to your liking. Just leave the pun alone, though — it’s really what ties the card together.
Available for £0.99 at Canva.
Chicks in a Pot
Surce: As the Ink Dries
This one’s an oldie but a goodie from Sharon Burkert on her site As the Ink Dries. It comes complete with a paper insert with chicks as the “handle” and a pot that serves as the greeting card’s pocket/holder.
We recommend using our A4 Coloured Matte Paper for this project — specifically, our cherry red, mustard yellow, and coral cardstock. Be sure to get a bit of faux silk ribbon to complete the card’s entire look.
Easter Wishes Card
Lavender lovers, rejoice. This lavender-themed Easter greeting card from Michele Boyer is a great DIY project for beginner crafters, featuring a simple lavender and white background that you can embellish with a gingham stamp. The card’s focal points are made from die-cut cardstock and a bunny stamp that you can colour in with markers. Add a die-cut sentiment strip and add your custom greeting to complete the look.
