    On a business greeting card you wouldn't use #2. Both 1 and 3 are possible depending on the type of relationship you have with the other person. In the US we don't always use this type of salutation (i.e. Dear... ) on greeting cards. It is more common to write (To) Mr. Doe (and Staff),(Mr.) John Doe (and Staff) or just (To) John or Dear John.
