MORE Fabulous Inexpensive GREETING Postcards


This is a second post showcasing some extra-vivid greeting postcards from the early years of the 20th century, all with rich embossing.  Available for just a few dollars each, they have outstanding colors and eye-catching designs.  They are ideal for artists, craftspersons and scrapbooking, and I like to send a picture of one of these with an email.



The two above greetings are especially wonderful for the rose-collector with big bright images of that beloved flower.


This Best Wishes design has a solid gold background, adding another layer of elegance to this image of violets and delicate lilies-of-the-valley. 


This design incorporates a big gold Good Luck horseshoe into the Best Wishes image.

Below are two postcards from a gorgeous bird-and-rainbow series that looks fabulous framed together.  Each card has a fancy gold border with art nouveau styling.




This image of red blossoms floating through the air has a sophisticated flair.  Inexpensive greeting designs come in a variety of types - the ones with no sentiment are especially suitable for framing.  You can find them for a few dollars on the internet sites and may also find exceptional examples reasonably priced at postcard shows - happy collecting!
