Inspirational Greeting Cards

Updated on September 19, 2014

Show you Care with a Religious Greeting Card

I love to receive inspirational note cards in the mail. Yes, I know in this day of email and ecards the handwritten card is quickly going away, but there is something quite wonderful about opening the mail and finding a card with a note from someone who cares. It shows that someone took the time to think about me and pick out a card to send me.

As I look for cards to make from my photograph one verse from the Bible always comes to mind "This is the day the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it". It seems that this verse is so appropriate for my nature photography from beautiful sunsets to mountain scenes to a beautiful flower. This verse fits how I feel when I look at the wonders of nature.

This verse from Psalm 118:24 was also a favorite of my late father-in-laws. He used to say it frequently and it always made me stop and think about the wonders of each day.

In this lens, I have chosen a number of photographs from my works and from others that are used to design beautiful greeting cards and a few posters too! I hope you enjoy my selection.

My cards can be found at my zazzle store at zazzle.com/mbgphoto.

Blessing Birthday Card

church card

I saw this little church while traveling in Maryland and thought it would make a nice greeting card. I have it set up as a Birthday card but you could personalize it to fit any occasion.

Lift High the Cross

Christian hymn

This church steeple reminded me of the words of one of my favorite hymns!

Cards for all Occasions

I like to have cards on hand for various occasions. Blank greeting cards are especially nice to add your own message.

This is the Day the Lord Hath Made

inspirational sunrise scene

I was on vacation in the Ohio and I rose early one morning and was rewarded with this beautiful sunrise rising behind the lighthouse. The sunrise always reminds me of the words of Psalm 119:24 "This is the day the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it"

He Leadeth me Beside Still Waters

Psalm 23 notecard

I took this photo on a clear fall day. The quiet misty waters reminded me of the verse in Psalm 23.

      ANd the Bible verse that inspires me? Here in the Jura mountains it has to be 'I will lift up mine eyes to the hills, from whence cometh my help'

      I love your cards. I am often asked for religious card kits and decoupage kits when I have done craft shows, and as a theologian, married to a clergyman, I have always tried to provide these. So your designs are a breath of fresh air, and I shall really enjoy looking at these on Zazzle _ you might take a look at my Ikon cards there sometime. Your cards are greet, and your use of Bible verses is, as you want it to be, truly inspirational.

      "The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.

      Being truly thankful for every small happiness granted;

      Realizing that you already have whatever you wanted;

      Knowing that you get as much and more when you give

      Is certainly such a wonderful and contended way to live.

      The older my dad got, the more he appreciated cards. I could see it on his face. He had more stuff than he needed and didn't want any more, he wanted less. So the cards meant so much. He read every word and saved them all!

      These cards are all wonderful! Your photography is always beautiful and it was so sweet of you to include cards from other Zazzle sellers as well.

      My favorite scripture: Psalms 139: 7-10 ~ "Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me."

      One of the favorites I've used a lot is "The heavens declare the glory of God." Maybe that's because I focus so much on the sky.

      Lovely card. It is hard to pick a favorite, but right now I am really meditating on Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."w
