Here is another of the vintage Christmas cards my friend surprised me with.  It has an unmistakably vintage look, don't you think?  I like how the stylized "halos" on the candle flames sort of go off the top of the card.  One wouldn't think the varying reds on the candles and berries would look good together, but they do!  I like the sort of sponged effect on the gray background, too.  It is very different!

And here is the inside of the card:

Like other vintage cards, this one features attractive fonts.  And the illustration inside is not a small vignette, like many other cards have, but rather a nearly full-size depiction of one candle and some holly.

 Hope you've enjoyed this glimpse at a somewhat out-of-the-ordinary vintage Christmas card!


  1. I love the way they put so much work into the inside of the card as well. I love that.

  2. Now why do modern cards have no illustration Inside? I like that those cards are nice Inside and out.

  3. Hi ladies!

    Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughtful comments!

    I occasionally have seen some more modern cards that have an illustration inside, but mostly they don't. I suppose it has to do with production costs, but I'm not sure.

    I too love the way that a lot more thought and design went into the older cards both inside and out. Some of them even had a little illustration on the back!
