Sweet Images from Christmas Past ~

I have quite an extensive vintage Christmas card
collection and I pulled a few of the pinks and blues to
share with you today.
{You can click to enlarge them and see more detail}

the white on santa's beard and hat is covered in sparkly glitter~
these candles and the card below are awash in glitter too ~
I hope you enjoyed some of my lovely cards today.

The cards are beautiful & what makes them extra great is they mostly have pink in them!!
Happy Holidays!

Very pretty, Sandi! I love the glittered, flocked and pop out ones! The 50s are my favorite card era, too. Do you know the dates of these? I'm trying to learn them by sight. ♥

Sandi, these images are just gorgeous! I've been looking for some pastel christmas images - do you mind if I use them in projects?

Julie said...

Sandi--my breath just got taken away! These are stunning!!! And, of course, my question is--may I use some of them in cards that I'd use for my blog? If you wouldn't mind, I'd just love to--feeling so inspired already (and it's 5:45 in the morning!) Let me know, if you don't mind!

Hope you're having a beautiful winter day!

Your cards are wonderful! I would love to use the santa and the candle in some of my ornaments but the dpi is so small. Could you email me a stronger resolution?
You are so sweet to show us some of your treasures! Thank you so much,

You've got a wonderful collection! I just started collecting vintage greeting cards this past summer, and I've only found a couple Christmas ones so far, but it's definitely a fun collection!

I see I am not the only one who is wondering if I can print some of these to use in my Christmas journal? the resolution is fine for me, I just need your ok.

Hi Sandi,
The vintage card collection is wonderful. I think I have seen some of these in my past at sometime, they are making me very nostalgic.
