Eggcellent Easter Card to Make

This Easter card is sort of a remake of one I hated.  The old one was so bad that I deleted the whole tutorial.  I won’t even show you a picture of the old one.  It was that bad.  This one is much better!  I like the colors and the bunnies a lot.

The finished size is 7X5 so the card fits nicely into an A7 envelope.

You will need:
        • Heavy  cardstock for the base 
        •  Scraps of cardstock
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Download File

Paper Selection

This Easter card needs a modestly heavy cardstock for the base (65 lb weight will do).  The base card has to be two sided.  It can be patterned but finding a two sided Easter pattern would be a challenge so stick to solid colors.  Pastels go best with the season.

The rest of the embellishments can be patterned or solid.  Just pick a small pattern.  Make sure they are different enough from the color you pick for the base card so they show up nicely.

Cutting the Card

The cutting is fairly easy.  There are a bunch of small pieces to cut out and the bunnies are really intricate so be careful when removing them all from the mat.

The font in the Design Space file is Be Happy and is an Access font.  In the SVG file I used a font called Ascota that you can get from DaFont.

Assembly

Start by re creasing the fold.  This card has an interesting variation.  Because of the hearts at the top, the area between the hearts can be glued together.  This creates a little ridge along the top.  It doesn’t affect the function of the card.  Just an interesting variation.

Lay out the embellishments (especially the word Easter) and put them on the card where you want them.  Look at the pictures if you need to.  The word Easter can be difficult to center but I’m sure you can figure it out.  Glue all the embellishments on the card.

 

And your Easter card is Done!  See wasn’t that simple?
