How can you fill your home or office with Christian paintings for less than a latte? Try using the beautiful and faith-filled artwork you find on Christian greeting cards as a source of inspiration.
Pinterest and other social media platforms are great sources for ideas for how you can incorporate Christian cards into your home on the walls. This is especially true when the cards feature hand-designed artwork, and in many cases, you can find designs that model great Christian paintings and religious icons. In fact, for years, monks have designed Christian and Catholic artwork or icons that help use their talents to support the work of the monastery.
Need ideas for how to incorporate Christian paintings you find on greeting cards?
1. Place a group of them in a collage frame to take up the wall space as a full-sized painting would do.
2. Place Christian greetings cards that depict religious scenes like the birth of Jesus, the resurrection or other pivotal moments behind glass frames and set candles around them for your own custom display.
3. For a child’s room, choose Christian paintings on cards and laminate them for a fun mobile project that the child can help create. Put a verse of scripture on the back of each one.
4. Use a series of images found on Christian greeting cards for telling a story in wallpaper border-style. Adhere them along the top of a room in a repeated pattern for a true conversation piece that talks about your faith.
The Printery House still makes greeting cards in-house with artistic lettering and design work by monks who live at Conception Abbey, a Benedictine monastery in the rolling hills of northwest Missouri. The cards have been designed and printed on the grounds of The Printery House for 60 years, so there’s something truly special about these pieces of Christian artwork. They truly are works of art that you can treasure for years to come.
