What are some possible religious and nonreligious wordings for Easter Cards?

Easter is largely a Christian religious holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As you consider wordings for your cards you could allude to this celebration with encouraging words such as, “He is Risen!” or “Wishing You A Blessed Easter.” Any spiritual or uplifting verse from the Bible or from a popular hymn would be appropriate for a religious Easter greeting card.

 

Common designs on religious Easter cards would be images of crosses or lambs. Feel free to use images of a non-religious nature even if the wording on your cards has references to religion or scripture verses. Beautiful landscapes and images of nature blooming and changing from winter to spring would be attractive and perfectly acceptable. 

 

For the non religious person, you may want to skip the word Easter all together as it marks a religious event, unless you are using it talk about the Easter bunny or Easter eggs. Consider sending cards with spring greetings or quotes concerning the beauty and joy of the blooming season such as “Spring is in the Air!” or “May Your Spring be Filled with Joy!”

 

For the décor on these cards concentrate on the season more than the religious celebration. Cute pictures of bunnies and chicks or pretty eggs are always charming. Make it even simpler by using pastel or bright colored papers to make the cards out of. These won’t require much additional decoration.

 

If you don’t want to come up with your own wordings or sayings for your spring or Easter cards, you can find tons of pre-made greeting cards for the season. Go online or to stores that sell greeting cards and you will definitely be able to find something appropriate. If you need several your best bet is to go online and purchase them in bulk. They are much less expensive this way also.

 

 If you would still like to try and make them yourself but are stuck on the wording or design, go to your local craft store and look for stamps or stickers appropriate for your cards. You may be able to find stamps with a cute spring or Easter quote on them. This may be a good investment because you will be able to use the stamp year after year.

Why do we send holiday cards anyway?

Everyone knows that as soon as the calendar gets flipped to the month of November, and even more so to December, life becomes just a little bit busier. People get caught up in the flurry of excitement that the holidays bring, and that includes extra baking, parties, a lot more shopping, decorating everything in sight and then crashing as soon as it’s all over, ready to go again the following year. In the midst of all of this happy chaos, there is also one more task that must be completed, and that is writing your family holiday cards to be sent to all of your relations and friends. Have you ever wondered though why we take the time to write up these cheerful greetings? Here are a few good reasons to keep you motivated, just in case this year you were considering letting this tradition go.

-The holidays happen at the end of the year, so it’s a wonderful time to wrap everything up by looking at your families accomplishments and putting them down to paper. You might consider it almost like a yearly diary entry – which everybody reads. So be a little selfish and do it for you just as much as for those who will receive it.

-Purchasing a gift for every member of your immediate family can be challenging enough without adding to that list every single person you have a relationship with (from your mailman to your best friend since elementary school). Sending out a holiday card is like sending a small gift to everyone. It’s a way to pass along merry greetings and let people know that you care about them and are thinking of them.

– Have you ever thought about all of the people you come in contact with each day? Of course many of them only touch our lives for a brief moment, but there are those who will stick with us for many years to come. With so many people in our lives it can be tough to keep in touch with everybody. Use a holiday card as a way to reconnect with old friends and keep them informed on the big news in your life.

-Many of us take Christmas cards for granted because of all of the various forms of social media we use. We don’t really value a friend’s family photo quite as much because we’ve been watching their kids grow through shutterfly and facebook. However, one simple reason to send a card is because it’s a tradition and traditions make us feel like some things will never change. In a world that is constantly reshaping itself around us, having something solid to hold on to gives a sense of peace.
