Making homemade greeting cards is a hobby that many people enjoy as a way to send holiday greetings, "thank you" notes, invitations or birthday cards. The decorating of the cards is the crafty part, but sometimes it can take just as much time and effort to come up with a message to use in the card. Verses or poems can be used to add heartfelt or even comical messages to your cards. There are many options for verses already in print and available for you to use.
