Sparkle and Shine... Vintage Christmas Cards

There's something about vintage Christmas cards...

They always make me smile. The illustrations are gorgeous and always sweet.

The colors... how does the ink stay so intense after all these years?

There is sweet and simple themes of faith, joy and family. These Christmases are always white.

And of course, the touch of sparkle, the shine. Always a touch of gold or silver embossing or other pretty metallic accent.

 And on this lovely card, tiny sequins, perfectly sprinkled on a Christmas tree surrounded by angels.

This one features two perfect deer on a snowy, sparkly morning.

Each card is sure to have brought some sparkly holiday cheer... then, and now. From me to you...
