You know typography plays a major role in how your designs are perceived.  Typography alone can influence perception and motivate action, which is why much attention is given to how typography is presented in marketing materials such as brochures and posters.  But have you ever considered how typography influences moods and feelings for greeting card recipients?  I, for one, believe that great greeting card typography can enhance sentiment, make an invitation seem more fun, and directly influence reaction.  Check out the following seven greeting card designs and see if you agree.
