Vintage Valentines (Part Two)

Part Two in our look at Vintage Valentines kicks off with one of my collection favorites, I just love the line work as well as the brick wall and card texture, and of course those beady lil cloak 'n dagger eyes! The remainder of these traditional greeting cards then delve into the "cute couples" catagory (fyi: none of these cards were given to me, they were all found in antique malls and ebay.) And pay extra close attention to the "Let's Bury the Hatchet" sample below, as it comes with a slitted pocket on the card front for the tiny removeable metal hatchet! I love cards that come with props! More Valentines in Part Three coming in a few days!

I agree that first one (the one with the flasher) is mighty great. I might cast my vote for the tunnel of love card, at least art-wise.

Ha, you saved me some work as I was going to post that first Valentine on the 14th! Enjoying all the cards!

I had so many more of these that I wanted to post but many of them are either too big for the scanner or they have pop-up / moving parts that would require more time constructing for a post than I actually have... maybe next year!

Thanks for the comments!

Those are cute. I particularly like the "cinderella wife" one for some reason. And I'm not even what you'd call romantic!
