Then, add the finishing touches by gluing the beads to your cover. You can write your greetings on the first egg cutout.

A little tip, you can choose one of the Easter representatives. It could be a cross symbol and lily combination. Follow the shape of the cross with the paper tape. Then, paint the lily ornaments on top of that. Finally, remove the paper tape to reveal an outstanding result.
Even though the cross sign is uncolored, the lily ornaments on the sides add to the elegant feel of the cross. You can also add "He is Risen" tags as details if you don't want to leave them blank.
Don't worry if you can't paint because you can use the template as your painting line. Place the template beside your white paper, and if you see the template's line, you can directly follow it. If it doesn't work, you can cut the template's line and then follow the cut line.
These are some ideas for making Easter greeting cards. You can follow the steps, but you can also express yourself through the design.
