Easter is only a few days away and back in January, I created a few Easter card designs, for this very occasion. If you take a look at my previous post, ‘print workshop‘, you can see the initial sketches and shapes that I used for my pretty Easter card designs.
I wanted this set of designs to represent the feeling of spring; incorporating greens and yellows with other pastel shades. There are also many textures in this set. The techniques used were lino printing, Illustrator (used for drawing the flowers) and various tools in Photoshop to bring it all together and finish off. As with many of my other designs I have used a range of media (with a few collaged buttons). I love the clean crisp lines that you can achieve in Illustrator and these sit very well with the textures. The text was applied at the end in Photoshop too.
I hope you like my pretty Easter card designs. They were definitely fun to produce and each card is different in design, yet I’ve kept the ‘look’ very similar.
Pretty Easter card designs
I like all of my designs, but this one just has to be my favourite! I love how all the flowers and the bird are centralised, with the eggs situated around the edges. The text is centre-aligned at the bottom. This composition is simple and effective, as they say!!
Have you bought your Easter cards yet and will you be indulging in some Easter eggs?
