Easter is just around the corner and I miss my family and friends back home in Vestlandet, Western Norway. In order to wish them a happy Easter and let them know that I’m thinking about them, I’m sending them Easter cards.
Something handmade is always more fun to receive than something bought and making things with my hands makes me very happy. Therefore, I like to make my own greeting cards using the embossing technique, and my Easter cards are no exception (check out last year’s cards here)! I hope I can inspire you to make you own cards, if not by embossing, then cut & paste or any other technique that you like to do.
If you are new to embossing, check out this post on how to do it. Once you’ve bought the tools it’s a very quick, easy and cheap way to create your own stationary, from greeting cards and place cards to menus and invitations.
I used two different kinds of stamps and printed in black, silver and gold embossing powder. Some of the cards got a scalloped edge by cutting with patterned scissors around the edge. I also printed the small greeting God Påske (Happy Easter) in the lower left corner of the envelope to ensure my friends know that this is not another bill arriving in their mail box. I aim to please!
