Easy Easter Card Making Ideas with Matching Envelope Liner and Gift Tag - Step by Step Guide

Updated on March 23, 2016


This guide will talk you through each piece one at time, so if you only want to make the card then you can.

You will still be able to make the envelope liners even without a board punch, there's no fancy equipment needed at all. You just need a few basic craft materials and I will tell you what they are as we are going along.

You'll find a free Easter Bunny Template and I'll even tell you where to find the free printable backing paper that I used for this project. But of course, you don't have to use pink like I have, you can choose from many different papers or you can use what you already have at home if you want to.

Where to find the Free Printable Dotty Paper


I am not associated with the site printableheaven in anyway but I came across it online recently and was particularly impressed to see such a good selection of free background papers, decoupage sheets, note cards and even motifs.

The site is relatively easy to use and you don't need to sign up or register before you can have access to any of the 150+ free printables.

I am not allowed to link directly to the pdf download but you can scroll down the page to find it. You might even find a different backing paper to what I have used, that you would like to use for this project.

So head over there and print off a sheet of Free Pink and white Dotty background paper and then come back. You may need to print off two sheets if you are planning on making both the Card and Envelope Liner.

Method:

  2. Print up the Easter Bunny template onto your white card
  3. Using the template, cut out the rabbit and the egg
  4. Drawer around the cut out templates onto the reverse side of your dotty paper using your pencil. (Drawer the egg 3 times as you will need 3 for this card)
  5. Cut them out and place to one side
  6. Now cut out the 'Happy Easter' Motif leaving around 2mm of white space after the grey dotted lines
  7. Use your wavy scissors to cut out a rectangle from the dotty paper. You want it to end up about 8cm across and 2.5cm in height.
  8. Glue the 'Happy Easter' Motif onto the pink dotty wavy triangle
  9. Take your White Card and ensure that it is horizontal and opens up at the bottom
  10. Now you are ready to glue you shapes onto the card. You can experiment with how you would like the eggs to look. They can be all stuck together of place around separately depending on how you would prefer them
