Egg Card and Envelope Step-by-Step Guide
Download the Template
Go to my resource library and grab the zip file with all the egg cards, envelopes, and egg designs. The file is called Egg Cards and Envelopes and it is a zip file. The file contains all the PNG Files as well as the SVG files to make this project.
Prepare Your Cuts
As with any SVG file when you bring it into Design Space or other application, you need to make adjustments to the color and what happens with each line in the artwork. Here are the adjustments you need to make for this project:
Set up score lines as shown in the diagram - one for each card, and four lines for the envelope.
Each of the inner designs on the small eggs will need to be set to DRAW along with the Wording.
The outside of each shape will be set to cut along with the inside of 3 of the egg shapes as shown. The trellis with rabbit should also be set to cut.
Assemble Your Card
Now for the fun part! There is not a lot of gluing but there is enough for you to have these cards personalized with your own touch.
For the large card, glue the trellis design to the front and glue the greeting on the inside. You can also embellish the inside with more egg designs.
If you are using the egg card with the zig-zag lines, paint or color the strips before you add a greeting on the inside.
To assemble the envelope, fold the sides in toward the center (you will apply the glue to these later), and then fold up the bottom.
Open the bottom, then apply the glue to the sides, then fold the bottom back up. Hold in place until the envelope is glued securely.
All is now ready!
The Final Touches
For this step you may want to add some of the egg designs to the outside of the envelope. There are plenty of eggs to go around so that you can color them yourself or use them as is. You may want to consider adding some silver or gold paper behind the eggs with cut out designs to give your eggs and elegant look.
Experiment with how you want your card and envelope to look.
One last thing, you can use the left=over eggs as part of your Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday!

Easter is a time of year where Spring is in full swing and we feel the need to celebrate. Although 2020 is offering some restrictions on how we join to together, this easy project will help your family work together making crafts! These Easter cards , once cut, can be decorated in a number of ways - the choice is yours. Adding coloring pencils, watercolor, or even Washi tape makes each card so very unique.
The method you use to cut out the shapes can be with a cutting machine, or you can use your scissors. Although I love using scissors, I do prefer my Cricut for cutting out the basic shapes. As for the adding color, that is where you can combine your artistic talent with your crafting skills.
I truly hope you and your family have fun with this project.
