Create your own Easter cards

Using Avery card products it's easy to create your own Christmas, Easter, Valentines or Birthday cards. Use Avery Design and Print Online to create a unique card for that special person. This step by step guide will show you how easy it is.

Step 1: Get the product

In this guide Avery MD2001 will be used.  It's part of the Avery 'My Design' range and is a specially designed A5 card (half the size of A4) for inkjet printers. Click here to learn more about this product and to find where to buy it.

Step 2: Use Avery Design and Print Online

Using Avery Design and Print Online, type in the product code you wish to use.  In this example MD2001 is being used.  You can also browse by product category if you are not sure of the product code to use.

Step 3: Select your predesign

Avery Design and Print Online offers many predesigned templates for your cards.  In this example an Easter image is being used, however you can always choose a blank design which allows you to fully customise your own card.  You can add your own images and text whether you use a predesign or a blank template.

Step 4: Design your card

You can now use all the features of Avery Design and Print Online to design your card.  Using the tools on the left of the screen you can add text, shapes, images (either images from the Avery gallery or photographs/images from your PC).  You can also add shapes to brighten up your card or even add a QR code - QR codes allow smartphones to scan the code and take the user to a predefined web page.

Step 5: Design the outside of the card

Please note that when using the software the 'front' of the card is actually one side of the A4 sheet, which will be folded in half after printing.  So 'front' is where you create the 'outside' of the card when it is folded in half. If you are not sure which side of the card you have designed, use the print preview feature to double check.

Step 6: Design the inside of the card

Please note that when using the software the 'back' of the card is actually one side of the A4 sheet, which will be folded in half after printing.  So 'back' is where you create the 'inside' of the card when it is folded in half (the area where you will write your message). If you are not sure which side of the card you have designed, use the print preview feature to double check.
