Greeting Card Verses & Sayings

Updated on November 22, 2013

If you are a card maker like myself, you know that one of the hardest parts to actually finishing a handmade card is trying to decide what to put on the inside of the card. In fact, the majority of those who sell their handmade cards don't even bother with this step and sell their cards blank, leaving the inside messages up to the individuals who purchase the cards. However, more often than not, people who purchase greeting cards would rather there be some type of message on the inside of the card they purchase and are turned off to buying a handmade card because its blank.

To help with this dilemma, here is a list of some greeting card sayings, quotes, poems and messages you can add to the inside of any blank greeting card to get you started.

Baby Greeting Card Sayings

"A bundle of joy to simply adore, now who in the world could ask for more!"

"Life is filled with lots of things that make it all worthwhile, but none is better than the love found in your baby's smile."

"A baby is cuddles and tickles on toes, the sweet scent of powder, a kiss on the nose. A baby is teddy bears, rattles and pins, meals at midnight, giggles and grins."

"A brand new miracle to call your own."

"A baby is a blessing, a gift from heaven above. A precious little angel to cherish and love."

"Every child begins the world again..." - Henry David Thoreau

"A sweet little treasure sent from above, a coo and a smile, wrapped up in love."

"A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for."


"The joy of having a baby today can only be expressed in two words: tax deduction."

"People who say they sleep like a baby usually don't have one." - Leo J. Burke

"You can learn a lot from children. Like how much patience you have for instance."

"Diaper backwards spells repaid. Think about it." - Marshall McLuhan

Birthday Greeting Card Sayings

"Because today's so special, it really wouldn't do, to send one simple birthday wish to last the whole year through. So this wishes happy moments, a day when dreams come true, and a year that's filled with all the things that mean the most to you."

"Hope lovely surprises are coming your way, to make your birthday a wonderful day."

"This brings a rish for all the best a day and year can bring for someone who should always have the best of everything!"

"Hope all that you do turns out happy for you, and all that you wish comes your way, so each hour will bring every wonderful thing you could ask of a wonderful day."

"May your birthday bring you as much happiness as you give to everyone who knows you."

"This special birthday greeting is being sent your way wish many happy wishes for a truly perfect day."

"Wishing you your happiest birthday yet... a birthday too special to ever forget."

"Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been." - Mark Twain

"You can't turn back the clock, but you can wind it up again."

"Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." - Jack Benny

"A good friend remembers your birthday and not your age."

"Here's to another year of experience."


"Lying about your age is easier now that you forget what it is."

"Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional."

"You know you're getting older when the candles cost more than the cake." - Bob Hope

"Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that people who have the most, live the longest."

"Better to be over the hill than be buried under it."

"So many candles, so little cake."

Love, Wedding, and Anniversary Greeting Card Sayings

"Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."

"Life is a journey. Love is what makes the journey worthwhile."

"You love me when I'm good or bad, you make me happy when I am sad. Now is the time I want to say, I love you each and every day."

"Dance like no one's watching. Love like its never going to hurt."

"The times we spend together are the best times that I know. I am a better person, because you've made me so."

"My love for you is deep and true. No matter what you do, I'll always be there for you. No matter where you go, I'll always be there beside you. Til the day I die, my love will always stay true to you."

"If I know what love is, it is because of you."


"Honeymoon: A short period of doting between dating and debating."

"If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?"

"Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight." - Phyllis Diller

"Love is like war. Easy to begin and hard to end."

Sympathy Greeting Card Sayings

"May knowing you're in the hearts and thoughts of others help you and yours through this time of sorrow."

"You're in my thoughts. Please know how much you are loved and how deeply your loss is felt by all."

"Words can't mend your heartache, but those who care and share your loss wish you comfort and peace of mind. May you find strength in the love of family and in the warm embrace of friends."

"It will be the little things that you remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again."

"Thank you for this gift, and the gift of knowing you."

"I could never have done it without you. Thanks!"

"I'm grateful to know you, and want to say thanks again, for always being there for me, and being my best friend."

"My day was brighter because of your simple act of kindness."

"You have a special way of making the world a better place."

      You have the most lovely card sentiments. I agree, the words are the hardest part of making the card. I have seen some beautifully made cards that seem to have something missing - what would that be? - word, sayings, sentiment, personalization( is that a word?). Great hub.
