10 Easter Cards to Send This Spring
With a new season right around the corner, and Easter not too far behind, why not spring a new stationery collection and send someone you love a cheerful note? After all, nothing says, "Let's get together soon for alfresco activities!" or "Come over for Easter brunch?" better than a personalized penned letter. And if you need some craft inspiration, you've come to the right place.
Start out with this cute paper-punched Easter bunny card. First, layer up your favorite spring colors or play around with patterns, then embellish the front with a bit of seam binding and tiny bunnies punched out from a craft punch tool. Or, send a card that really "pops" with our floral cards. All you need is our handy template, a craft knife, some double-sided tape, and a stack of colored paper in your favorite spring palette. You can even choose to further embellish the flower cut-outs with any additional décor like small gems, sequins, or a touch of glitter. Looking for more floral card ideas? This adorable daisy-chain cutout card features a dainty ring of the tiny paper blooms, glued onto the colored card stock of your choice. Or, perhaps you'll love the look of our classic pressed pansy cards. With their flat blossoms, pansies and their viola cousins make for easy pressing and drying.
