Easy Easter Card

This Easy Easter Card is so simple, you can make several of these in a short amount of time.  Especially, if you waited until the last-minute like I did.  Feel free to make this one your own with whatever brads and card stock you have on hand.  Depending on what you choose – or when you send your card – you could choose a purple ribbon or white ribbon.  

I didn’t know this until I did a little research:  the purple or black sash/ribbon on the cross is a symbol of the importance of Lent and Holy Week and can also symbolize repentance.  The white sash/ribbon is in honor of the resurrection of Christ and replaces the purple or black sash on Easter Sunday.
