Red, white and blue Christmas cards for July 4


 Yes, it's July 4th, and so in honor of Independence Day I will share a special red, white and blue vintage Christmas card.  This is a very small card -- about 3 1/2 inches by 4 1/4 inches.  It'll probably be listed in my Etsy shop by the time you read this.  

I like the striking simplicity of this card.  The dark blue fir sprigs, sprinkled with a few red berries, adorn the red, white and blue background, and red and white stars are scattered all over it.  I believe this card may be from 1946 or so -- not long after the end of World War ll.

And here's another vintage card with similar colors, from a similar time frame.  The top photo, with the blue-gray background, is the front of the card.

The second, with the red background, is the inside of the card.
