Happy Easter Greetings Cards for the Family
This week I’ve been busy thinking ahead to Easter, and how this year will be different…
Last Easter was magical. We’re part of a large family with lots of little boys and while usually we are scattered across the country (and countries) last Easter we all managed to get together for a giant Easter egg hunt in Devon – because Easter is for children if you ask me. This year of course things are different and we need to use more traditional ways of sending our Easter greetings to the whole family. So I’ve designed a lovely spring time happy Easter greetings card for the family and our friends to remind them of the fun we had last year.
The design uses several key elements that link directly back to those warm sunny days we spent together in Devon. Let me explain…
My happy Easter greetings card design broken down…
The Easter yellow background is a nod to the stunning weather we had that long weekend. It was a glorious few days where Devon was exactly as it should be, sunny, warm and lush.
The colourful flowers making up the Easter wreath represent the amazing flowers and gardens we hunted for eggs in. We rented an old cottage in my in-laws village (as there are so many of us!) and while the house itself needed a little love the gardens were incredible, and the boys had great fun running around and enjoying the countryside.
And finally, the chocolate egg! I wonder what that element signifies? Of course it represents the Easter egg hunt itself. Organised by my mother-in-law, who did a sterling job I might add, all six grandsons (there’s been two more additions since then) had an amazing time hunting through the huge garden with their Easter buckets looking for their treasure of Easter eggs.
The memories made that day will last for a long time, not just for us adults but for the children too. It’s not often that all the cousins manage to get together, and to be in such a special location at such a special time will stay with them forever.
So this card, which on the face of it, is just a card is in fact more than that. It’s a reminder of the fun we had and the memories shared and I hope that when our family and friends receive it they too will remember that time.
