Making Christian Greeting Cards
to inspire, encourage and bless
Making Christian greeting cards to sent out to friends or family members on their birthdays, wedding or wedding anniversary or just to say 'Hello' can be so fun and inspiring.
So gather your card making tools and supplies, call a few crafty friends and get together for an afternoon of creative fun.
In Quietness and in Confidence
Below are two Christian greeting cards I have made.
- One is just to say 'Hello!' with a Bible verse, 'In quietness and in confidence will be your strength.' Isaiah 30:15.
- And the second one is a fun heart card with the message, 'When we can't see God's hand, we can trust His heart.'
Do You Know?
Making and sending Christian cards is a way to encourage or bless others with God's word. It is also a tool for sharing the gospel and share the love of Jesus and the work He has done on the cross for us.
Be sure to scroll down to the bottom to view the other Christian card - God's Heart.
In quietness and trust is your strength.
- Isaiah 30:15

Christian Greeting Cards #2 - God's Heart
2 Card Making Tips:
- Instead of a sponge, use polyester filling for quilting. Cut into small pieces so you can use for a few projects and throw away. Use a separate piece for each color. Keep them in a box and reuse without inking if you want a softer look.
- Don't have Scripture verse on a rubber stamp? You can easily create the bible verse on a Word document and print out onto white cardstock.
