Since Easter celebrations tend to focus--as celebrations do--on having fun, make a silly, upbeat greeting card starring the Easter bunny. Adorn the front of the card with a drawing of a fuzzy young rabbit crouched in the grass next to an enormous basket filled with candy and dyed eggs, regarding the camera with a quizzical expression. On a strip of white below the image, include the text, "Let me get this straight." The inside of the card should continue, "You want me to drag this thing around and give everybody candy? Who do I look like, Santa Claus?" Below that, write, "Hoppy Easter!"
Create a thoughtful Easter card centred on the theme of birth and new beginnings, using the egg as an appropriate symbol--both for its literal associations (baby chickens) and its cultural ones. On the front of the card, centre a drawing or edited photo showing an elaborately decorated Easter egg with a crack in the top. Inside the card, insert the text, "What's hatching in your life? Happy Easter!" That kind of base text invites the person sending the card to write a personal message to the recipient about the changes, growth and challenges happening in her life.
Honour the religious roots of Easter with a faith-focused, reflective yet joyful greeting card. On the front of the card, place an image of beauty from the natural world, such as a photograph of budding oak tree limbs forming a lacelike pattern against a cobalt sky. Look for an image that subtly references the themes of rebirth and new life. Superimpose a relevant verse from the Bible on the image, such as John 10:17: "For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again" or this evocative fragment from John 11:25: "I am the resurrection and the life." The inside text should say something uplifting and religious, such as, "Wishing you a joyous, Christ-filled Easter."
