Let’s start this week off with an Easy Easter Card! I love making cards, but sometimes I get so wrapped up with all of the advanced tools and techniques. I’m going to try making more basic cards to share for those who are just getting started.
Easter is only a week away, so if you want to make Easy Easter Cards, you better “hop” on it. Get it? hehe! Sorry! I’ve had way too much caffeine today.

Supplies Needed for this Easy Easter Card
- 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ White card stock for card base
- 5 1/4″ x 4″ bright blue card stock – I ran my cardstock through the Cuttlebug to add texture to it.
- 1 1/2″ strip of dotted patterned paper
- Penny Black Easter Stamp
- 1 1/2″ circle punch
- 1 3/4″ circle punch
- 2″ Scalloped circle punch
- Scrap of white paper
- Scrap of light blue paper
- Scrap of yellow paper
- Scrapbook Adhesive – If you have trouble choosing adhesive, visit Card Making and Scrapbooking Adhesive to help you choose the kind you need.
- Stamp the Easter Egg on a small scrap of white card stock. Color it with markers or colored pencils, and punch it out using the 1 1/2″ circle punch. If you’re new to stamping, read How To Use Rubber Stamps
- Using the 1 3/4″ circle punch, cut out a circle from the light blue scrap paper.
- Using the scalloped punch, cut out a circle from the yellow scrap paper.
- Fold the 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock in half to form the card base.
- Adhere the bright blue card stock to the front of the card.
- Attach the dotted paper to the center of the card.
- Attach the scalloped circle, plain circle, and Easter Egg to the front of the card as shown.
This is a very basic card that is easy to copy. Layering the circles and scalloped circle is a simple way to add interest to a handmade card.
