Classic Holiday Cards

Thanksgiving is over and now it is on to Christmas. Last year I shared some Classic Christmas Cards from my Grandma’s scrapbooks.

This year I decided to share more of them. This first batch all have a wintry theme. The cards are all just a little over 50 years old.

Showmen - Holiday Card - Christmas Card - Classic Christmas CardI really like this first card. The snowboy and snowgirl look so happy together. I also like their scarves. They are my favorite color.

This card also makes me think of my Mom since she has a large snowman collection.

Winter Scene - Holiday Card - Christmas Card - Sleigh - Winter Farm - Blue CardThis card makes me think of growing up back in the Midwest where we would have snow every winter. Of course, we didn’t go sleighing. However, I am sure that my Grandma would have remembered riding in a sleigh.

I also like the color combination in this card. The blue and pink make for a nice contrast.

Holiday Card - Greeting Card - Christmas Card - Sleigh - Winter Scene - Pine TreesHere we have another beautiful card that features a horse and sleigh. I have several Christmas carols running through my head now.

I like the color of the card and the nice use of glitter in the trees. The yellow blanket in the sleigh is also a very nice splash of color.

The little church building and houses in the background look so peaceful and bring back memories of tiny little towns in Iowa.

Alas, I can only dream of snow unless I want to drive up to the mountains.
