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.
Easy Easter Card
- 4.5″ x 6″ colored card stock
- 5.75″ x 8″ white or cream card stock
- Brown card stock scraps
- 5″ ribbon – purple, black, or white
- 4 brads

- Fold 5.75″ x 8″ card stock in half. Crease well.
- Adhere to center of colored card stock.
- On top “flap” of cream/white card stock, carefully poke the brads into the four corners and open tabs, checking to ensure tabs cannot be seen from the front.
- Cut two strips of brown card stock scraps – 2.25″ x 1/4″ and 3.75″ x 1/4″
- Using adhesive, adhere in cross shape as show in picture.
- Cut pop dots in half with scissors. Place pop dots halves at the very edges of the cross, and one in the center.
