Free Easter Card Assembly Instructions:
- First, print the FREE image Easter Greetings Girl with Chicks onto inkjet paper, following manufacturer’s instructions so the image measures about 5-1/2″ wide. Trim the image close to the edge.
- Next, using spray mount adhesive, adhere the image to a sheet of decorative paper, applying slight pressure to secure in place. Using a ruler, measure out from the edge of the image 3/16″ and mark with a pencil. Trim along pencil lines to create a border with the decorative paper.
- Using spray mount, adhere the image to another sheet of decorative paper in a contrasting color applying slight pressure to secure in place. Trim around the image with pinking shears to create a second border.
- Now, using spray mount, adhere the image to a third sheet of decorative paper, applying slight pressure to secure in place. Using a ruler, measure out from the edge of the second border about 1/8″ and mark with a pencil. Trim along the pencil lines to create the last outer border.
- Now cut a sheet of decorative paper to 6-3/8″ x 6-5/8″ edge (for back of card). Measure in 2-1/4″ and mark with a pencil. Score along the pencil lines to create a fold – for best results, lay a ruler flat along pencil lines, then run a craft knife lightly along the edge of the ruler to create a crisp fold. Fold the bottom corners of the paper in towards center to create a pocket.
- Next, add small grommets at corner points of pocket edge, following the manufacturer’s directions to secure the pocket. Using a glue stick, attach the card back to the card front along the top scored edge making sure the “pocket” side is inside the card. Finish by adding grommets to the four corners of the card front (note: top grommets will go through the front & back of the card while the bottom grommets will only go through the front of the card).
- Finally, fill your card pocket with happy Easter greetings, notes, gift cards or other treats for your recipient.
