I made a new Passover card design this year that I’ve been thinking about for a little while. It’s a seder plate design, but instead of the traditional Hebrew item designations in the center, I chose a word expressing the symbolism of each item.
- Karpas – Greens – Renewal
- Zeroah – Shankbone – Strength
- Maror – Bitter Herb – Suffering
- Chazeret – Lettuce – Bitterness
- Charoset – Mortar – Building
- Beitzah – Egg – Rebirth
It happens that this is also the week of the 2022 Etsy strike, a protest against the recent hikes in transaction fees and punitive shop policies. I have put my Etsy shop on vacation mode from April 11-18, which is actually good timing for me so I don’t have to think about packing and shipping orders while preparing for and enjoying the first few days of Passover. Thus, I am posting free printable files of this year’s design and the one I created for 2020.
You can download each design in 2 formats. Both fold to 4.25″ x 5.5″ to fit into an A2 envelope. The “Single Sheet Fold” can be printed on one sheet of standard printer paper and folded twice so that the message appears on the inside. (Think back to your old Broderbund Print Shop creations.) Or, if you are crafty and have card stock and a paper cutter on hand, you can print the 2-Sided version back to back and cut in half before folding. Pro tip: use a folding bone to score the card stock before folding, for a clean fold. (I don’t get affiliate commissions on these links, they’re just for clarity.)
Seder Plate (2022):
May We All Be Free (2020):
Chag kasher v’sameach, everyone: Wishing you a kosher and joyful holiday. Or, to use the softer Yiddish formulation: A zissen Peysekh, wishing you a sweet Passover.
