Looking for ecards to give to friends and family this Good Friday? Plenty of websites offer free or low-cost greeting cards so you can easily wish anyone a Happy Good Friday.
All-Yours has a selection of 36 animated and wallpaper ecards for Good Friday. The animated cards play Christian music, and you can also select music to accompany the wallpaper email. During the selection process for either type of card, you choose the card’s background (which range from solid colors to patterns), layout, and for your personal message: text color, text size, and font.
The animations for the cards are well done and smooth. In one, a simple cross on a hill is accompanied by a sun slowly rising in the background. All-Yours also allows you to add these ecards to your MySpace profile.
2. 123 Greetings
123 Greetings offers 22 Good Friday animated ecards. You can personalize the card with a message (and choose the font and alignment). You can also specify what date the card is emailed. The cards themselves are polished and play music. For one example, a cross opens the scene of a church with dazzling candles and a cross and quotes a Psalms passage.
Keep in mind that 123 Greetings does not ask recipients to download attachments. Scammers frequently like to masquerade as 123 Greetings.
While EGreetings doesn’t offer specific Good Friday greeting cards, it does have a variety of Christian ecards. You can personalize each one to include a Good Friday message.
One card sings Amazing Grace, complete with handholding silhouettes and a sunset. While the ecards are free, it does sometimes come at the price with a mandatory viewing of a commercial before you can preview the greeting card.
4. Greeting Cards
Greeting Cards has two Good Friday ecards. You can add a personal message to each one. One depicts clouds that fade away to reveal a stained-glass window. A scroll then appears and unrolls to greet the reader with a Good Friday message. The other ecard shows a storm for Monday through Thursday and then unveils a clear sky with a rainbow and butterflies for Friday. Both are a little cheesy, yet cute.
Cost: Paid Membership ($4.95 per month)
5. American Greetings
American Greetings only offers a single Good Friday card. However, American Greetings does have a stellar reputation as a safe website.
The card is unanimated and simple, which may be appropriate for a rather solemn holiday, with a picture of a velvet cloth draping a cross. You can also personalize the message. The music, however, is a little jarring compared to other sites.
