This celebratory “Oh Happy Day” card turned out to be one of my favourite cards that I included in my shop launch. It is perfectly playful, and satisfyingly simple.
This card is inspired by a card that I made to celebrate a friend’s baptism.
The words on this card are the title lyrics of a song that I love to sing when someone gets baptized, “Oh! Happy Day! Happy Day! You washed my sin away!”
Baptism through immersion basically means getting dunked in water. This is to represent death (submersion in water), burial (still underwater), and resurrection with Christ (coming back up out of the water). Baptism doesn’t “clean away sin” or do anything significant. But it is a public demonstration of what has already inwardly happened in a Christian when they come to faith and are saved. For a Christian, this is one of the most, if not the most, exciting things to celebrate. You get to hear the story of how someone came to the faith, and celebrate with them the new life that they have found in Jesus Christ.
This card is for any congratulatory event, whether that be a graduation, a baptism, a birthday, or anything in between! I might even start using it celebrate life everyday, cause every day should be a happy day, don’t you agree?
How have you, or would you, use this card?
