Easter is traditionally associated with Easter eggs and a cross, symbols that also have a spiritual meaning if you follow the Christian faith. This Vintage Golden Cross DIY Easter Card combines these symbols with vintage-inspired elements, such as golden and sparkling embellishments, as well as delicately textured papers and materials. All of these elements combined onto this homemade Easter card lead to a pleasing end result. A great way to send some Easter wishes to family and friends as well as remind everyone why we celebrate this miraculous holiday!
