I made these Modern Easter Cards because Easter and I have a contentious relationship. I don’t know if it’s the pastels, the mysterious basket filling that resembles melted shards of plastic or the complete horror movie factor of bunnies, but unlike Easter’s far away cousin Christmas, this season makes it very hard for me to do holiday crafts for.
Every year I swear I will try to work with Easter and get into the Easter decor. Sometimes I fail. And sometimes I do ok. This year, we’ll see how these go. I decided to give you a bit of a modern makeover from last years fabric cards.
Apparently geometric is the new chevron. Or ikat. Or something to that effect. Alas I did put a bird on it. You are after all, Easter. That’s my excuse.
This is the part where I am supposed to write instructions on how to make these, but instead I took photos as I made them, which are pretty self explanatory.
Because paper is a lot easier to cut shapes out of than felt. Which I love and started to make these cards with. And then I realized Easter is less than 2 weeks away and that was a really bad idea given the back injury I got making the Christmas ones.
I liked using paper so much this just may become the beginning of a new relationship for us. And you match the DYMO labels on the cards so nicely too. Which for the record, are going on the eggs. But that’s another post.
