Forgot all about purchasing your Easter cards? No, problem! I’ve got you covered with these free printable vintage Easter Cards. Hello, Kenarry: Ideas for the Home friends! I’m Pam from The Birch Cottage and I’m back again this month to share another easy project with you.
Believe it or not, I’m not sharing another DIY project involving ceramic or mosaic tile. But, now that I think about it, these ceramic tile projects are all super easy and would make great additions to an Easter basket or even a nice hostess gift. You can read all about my tile coasters and matching tile placemats, or my favorite coasters from ceramic tiles or even this super easy to make cheese cutting board (that I use all the time) right here on Kenarry: Ideas for the Home. Seriously, they would make great handmade gifts for Easter or any occasion.
Vintage Easter Cards
Since Easter is just a week away, I thought I’d share these Vintage Easter Cards with you. I found the prints on the New York Public Library’s Digital Collections website. They have a massive library that contains vintage illustrations that have been scanned and included as part of their public domain resources. What this means is that you can use any of these images without worrying about copyright infringement. (But you should always verify, just to make sure!)
In fact, if you’re interested in more free printable vintage illustrations, be sure to visit The Birch Cottage blog where I began a series of posts last month on the very subject of vintage illustrations (and I have several more posts planned). You can learn about where to find vintage illustrations and, while you’re there, be sure to download your free vintage botanical prints, too! And, like I said, I have more to share, so be sure to sign up for my newsletter so you’ll be the first to know when these beautiful vintage prints and cards are available!
In case you can’t tell, I’m really in awe of these vintage illustrations and prints. Which brings me to today’s project. These prints were just too precious not to download and use in some way. Thus, the Vintage Easter Cards were hatched (my attempt at humor).

How to Print Vintage Easter Cards
The cards are formatted to print on a standard 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper. I do highly recommend you use cardstock for printing these cards; otherwise, your cards will be kind of flimsy. The cards will fit any size A2 envelope. Envelopes are not included with the cards. You can, however, purchase the A2 cards at just about any store that carries office or paper crafting supplies, such as Staples, Michaels, Wal-Mart, and Hobby Lobby. You can also, of course, order them online from Amazon.
Besides cardstock paper, your color printer and a pair of scissors, there are a couple of other tools that help make this project a little easier and prettier. I’ve listed those supplies below for your convenience.
Once you have your supplies and have downloaded your card, you’ll simply want to print the image and cut it out along the solid rectangle that outlines the card. Be sure to cut just inside the black line if you don’t want the black line to show on your card. You can easily cut along the sold line with a pair of scissors or use your paper cutter for faster and straighter lines.
Once your card is printed and cut to size, you can then fold your card in half and round the corners with your corner punch. Or simply leave the corners as is, write your sentiments on the inside of the card and it’s ready for giving!
I think these Vintage Easter Cards are just adorable. You may have noticed, but one card reads “Hoppy” Easter while the other card reads Happy Easter. And that, my dear friend, is my easy, last minute, DIY, Easter Card tutorial.
