Vintage Valentine Postcards…

Jan 17, 2009 by

Below is a link to a few vintage postcards from my personal stash. Just click on the link, then click on open pdf. There you will find 7 images for you to use.

I love to use postcards as accents in projects or stick them here and there around the house as decorations. They look cute tucked in the side of a frame or mirror, they make sweet tags to adorn a Valentine treat and strung together using baker’s twine or seam binding will make a simple garland as in bygone days.

I’m sure you will come up with some wonderful ideas which I can’t wait to see. Don’t forget to post your projects in the gallery as I will be giving away a RAK containing some wonderful Maya Road goodies… my little Cupid (Santa has a side job) will be picking out a winner on the 31st.

These sweet valentine cards were given to Purell Williams as stated on the back from several of his classmates… Barney, Mary, Harold, Emory and Hugh. I can only imagine the excitement these school kids had while sharing their Valentines. Inside the card given by Mary reads…

If I could get your ear a minute, Here’s what I think I’d whisper in it. ~I L*** Y**

I can only imagine the gasp heard all around on the playground.!

These valentines were given to Purell from Mary Elizabeth and Paul with a simple little greeting of “Be my Valentine.” I love the outer edge on each card. They are cut so beautifully. I think accenting these with glitter or Stickles would make a gorgeous valentine.

Although I must admit, each time I look at the one of the little boy it makes me think he might have just eaten his special Valentine’s box of candy or at least sampled a few of the sweets inside. To me he looks so mischievous.

These valentines are from Harriette, Meribal, Maynard and Carlie. I think Carlie and Meribal might have a little crush on Purell… here is what their valentines say…

MeribalI’m hopin’ and I’m wishin’ too for one word ~ can’t you guess? When I say, “Be my Valentine!” that you will answer ~ YES!

Carlie… I love you every single day a lot more than you think and if you’ll be my Valentine I’ll just be tickled pink.

I wonder who was able to tug on Purell’s heart strings the most and win him over?

In this set of valentines one comes with a warning. The one that reads “My Heart’s Message” on the front states inside in bright bold red…

A Warning
I’ll not depend on Cupid’s dart,
I’ll take my shears
And steal your heart.
