If you look at all of my projects, you will see that my style is mostly bright and colorful. So making this Vintage Easter Card was a bit of a challenge.
Anything vintage is very popular right now with the shabby chic trends. I had a Vintage Easter Stamp set, so I thought I’d give it a try.
Supplies Needed for Vintage Easter Card
- Easter Stamp Set
- Markers or colored pencils for coloring the image. I used Copic Markers.
- Die Cuts With A View Butterfly Garden Paper Stack
- 2 3/4″ x 4″ white cardstock
- Scrapbook Adhesive – I used tape runner adhesive for everything except attaching the butterfly. I used a glue dot for that.

Instructions for Vintage Easter Card
- Stamp the egg on the white card stock. You could also use tan card stock. I used Antique Linen Distressed Ink by Tim Holtz to add some color and texture to the white card stock. (Are you new to rubber stamping? Visit How to Use Rubber Stamps for help getting started.)
- Color the image with markers or water color pencils.
- I love using paper stacks when making handmade cards. Everything coordinates making it very easy to design a card. Usually, I would use a solid piece of card stock as the card base, but the paper in this stack was thick. Choose a pattern that you want for the base of your card and cut it 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
- This stack also had sheets of patterned borders. Cut a border 4″ x 2 3/4″, and attach it to your card base.
- Choose another pattern from the stack to mat your image. I chose a dark pink floral print. Cut it 3″ x 4 1/4″ and adhere it to your image. Then attach both layers to your card.
- To finish this card, I cut out a small pink and gold foiled butterfly and attached it with a glue dot. The butterfly was on the cover of the paper stack. I hated to see it go to waste!
The little bit of gold foil and the distressed look, give this Easter Card a nice Vintage look. I’m getting better at using my Copic Markers!!
