Vintage Cards ~ Treasures From Grandma's Attic and Vintage Alphabet

Welcome to another "Treasures from Grandma's Attic" post! In this installment I'll be sharing some of the prettiest vintage greeting cards that Gram had saved for that special occasion.

This also fits perfectly with the Vintage Alphabet link party held by Melody and the Etsy Cottage Style Blog...This month its the letters C and D.

Let's start with a few Anniversary cards...Roses, a pretty 3-D garden gate, and Marie Antoinette.

Some lovely Get Well wishes...









How sweet is that little bluebird?! And here's another bluebird card sending a hearty Congratulations...
And now my favorites, the cards welcoming a new baby...These are just as cute on the inside.This one comes with a little booklet inside to record all of Baby's "firsts"...Thanks for letting me share one of my collections with you. Be sure to stop by the Vintage Alphabet Party for more fun collections starting with the letters C or D. :-)

These cards are so beautiful! I don't think we have ever seen such beautiful cards. They just don't make them like this anymore. These a most certainly a treasure!

Have a great week!

Oh my goodness what lovely vintage cards. I love the adorable pictures found on these vintage treasures. When I go to estate sales and flea markets vintage cards are one of the first things I look for. Sometimes the best ones are hiding way down in the bottom of the box. I really enjoyed my visit to your blog.
Fondly,

Wow Kimberly, Those vintage cards are wonderful. They'd be great for embellishment copies to use in paper projects like the ones Two Crazy Crafters do. Check out thier blog. You'll see what I mean. I'm so glad you stopped by again!

l absolutely love vintage cards. They bring back happy simple times. My auntie lived to be 100. She always sent me a birthday card from the moment I can remember a birthday. And she always sent cards for occasions like Easter. I wish I still had them.

Oh MY GOSH!! These are the best! I also have a collection of vintage cards and I am always amazed at how detailed the inside of cards used to be. Your diecuts are the coolest!

Thanks for sharing!
