Vintage Greeting Cards

Hi folks. I know I've been M.I.A. for a while.
However, it's time to share what has me 
virtually obsessed.

My aunt gave me an old album full
of vintage greeting cards.

I was able to carefully peel them off the glued pages.
Most were anniversary theme.  I found a few dated ones,
so I'm confident they're from the 1940's.  

Aren't they lovely???
I am smitten with each & every one!

So now I'm cutting bits & pieces out 
and creating new cards with old flair!

The images are dreamy art!  
A few added embellishments give them dimension.

Some old cards can make THREE new cards!
Look how they are folded...

The next three cards were made with one old card.

Aren't those tiny flowers & doves darling???!

I've had to work around lots of 
anniversary bells, but have been 
able to salvage flower borders.

These yellow rose borders make my heart sing!
Adding them to a heartfelt card 
is sure to brighten someones day.

I like to leave some cards blank, for any occasion.

The mother card has a dictionary page
for the background.

This card has sweet butterflies stamped on,
to help fill out the blank spaces.

I hope you've enjoyed my current craft projects!  
Let me know what you think of these cards. 
 Do you think YOU would ever buy some to send out?  
I need some junker friend feedback!

All stamps used are from

  1. Love them!!! I also make cards and find that they don't sell that well...I would buy them.

  2. Oh My gosh Jane I am SO impressed. Thank you for using was a shame to throw them. I did keep one and frame it. If you get to the farm it's in the upstairs west bedroom. You are amazing!!
