Easter Greeting Cards
Homemade Easter Cards

If you are making Easter greeting cards yourself and need some card ideas, here are four greeting cards for Easter card sending that might help jump-start your Easter card making.

I created these Easter greetings with much thoughts because I do not have any Easter theme rubber stamps or cliparts. And since I need to make quite a few, I do not think that I have time to draw and paint each card.

After thinking through and looking at my collection of rubber stamps, I come up with these four card designs. Actually, three of these designs used a egg shape template. Here are the four Easter greeting cards. They are fun to make and look quite lovely. 

Easter Greeting Cards: Do Not Open

The colors used for this Easter greeting card are turquoise, pink and chocolate brown.

Card Making Supplies Used:

  • turquoise color blank folded card
  • white cardstock 4" x 3" for egg shaped design
  • small white card scrap for tag
  • pigment ink pads: chocolate, pink and turquoise
  • clear embossing powder
  • heat gun
  • light brown raffia
  • rubber stamps: borders clear stamps by My Favorite Things
  • scissors
  • glue
  • black permanent ink pen
  • fine sandpaper(optional)

Card Making Instructions:

  1. Make a egg shaped template using a piece of graph paper or card stock. I roughly drew one that's about 3 by 4 inch on a piece of graph paper and used it to trace onto white cardstocks.
  2. Place it on the white cardstock and trace around the template to get the outline of an egg.
  3. Cut out and if needed, use a fine sandpaper to smoothen the edges.
  4. Place border clear stamp on acrylic block. Make the border curve a bit. (This is one reason why I love these clear stamps.)
  5. Ink with pigment ink and stamp onto the egg shaped white cardstock. (Refer to the picture above to get an idea.)
  6. Pour clear embossing powder on the stamped image, shake off excess powder and heat to melt the powder.
  7. Repeat with other border clear stamps until the egg shaped cardstock is fully filled with border designs. You can alternate the border stamps. Here I used only 3 border designs.
  8. Use the chocolate color ink pad to swipe over the egg shape. Or you can use a piece of polyester foam to apply the ink. Make sure that the edges are darker to give a 3D look.
  9. Dampen a piece of tissue paper and wipe clean the embossed designs of chocolate brown ink.
  10. Wrap the light brown raffia around it and tie a knot leaving two short ends of about one and a half inch long. Twist the tip of the two ends.
  11. Cut a small tag, color it pink and write the words, 'Do Not Open Until EASTER' with black permanent pen.
  12. Punch hole and insert one end of the raffia into it.
  13. Apply glue and attach to the front of the turquoise color blank folded card.
