SHARE THE FAITH WITH CELEBRATIONS OF FAITH(R) CARDS
NEW FROM AMERICAN GREETINGS
CLEVELAND, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Share the faith, or just a few simple uplifting words, with "Celebrations of Faith" -- a new collection of non-denominational religious cards from American Greetings. The cards address the happy times, as well as those times when a few words of support can make all the difference, with sentiments for a variety of sending situations. Each card references a Bible verse that corresponds to the card's sentiments.
"There has been a resurgence in the emphasis of religion in many Americans' lifestyles, and they want to reflect that spiritual influence in their communication with others," said Karen Zemba of the American Greetings product management group. "Celebrations of Faith provides messages that reflect varying degrees of religious commitment."
One card, featuring bright, cartoon style graphics, reads, "Today, I was thinking of all the wonderful things God created . . . and you came to mind." Another gives encouragement with this lighthearted verse, "Smile, and remember -- when life gives you rain . . . He gives you rainbows." Another card combines contemporary religious versing from Jean Kyler McManus with watercolor designs. It reads, "God Bless You on Your Birthday and Always/God Bless you in the morning/When you greet the sun's first ray/God bless you in the afternoon/And all throughout the day/God Bless you in the evening/And fill every hour you live/With the perfect peace of mind and heart/His love alone can give . . Wishing you a beautiful birthday."
Celebration of Faith cards will be available in American Greetings, Forget Me Not and Carlton Cards retail locations nationwide in December.
