How to Add an Easter Greeting to a Card

Once you've chosen the Easter sentiment for your card, you have to decide how you're going to add it. If you're creating a totally handmade card, the sentiment can become the major focal point if you wish. Here are some ideas:

  • Alphabet stamps: Alphabet stamps are a good option if the quote you're using isn't very long. Stamp your message onto scrap paper first to see how much room the sentiment will take before stamping it directly onto your card. If you need to split the sentiment over multiple lines of text, experiment to see how different configurations will look.
  • Printed text: Adding printed text to a card is a nice alternative if your sentiment is lengthy or if you're in a hurry and don't have the time for stamping. Use high-quality paper rather than plain white office paper, and match the font to the design of the card.
  • Handwriting: Whether you break out your calligraphy pens or just opt to use a marker, don't be afraid to simply handwrite the Easter sentiment onto your card. A handwritten note always adds a special touch, making your card feel more personal and unique.
