My first task was to find a postcard template that looked vintage, or make one. Oh how I wish this wonderful resource from Blah, Blah, Blahg existed several months ago.
I set out to draw my own. That didn’t go so well. Then I tried finding a stamp online, but nothing really said “vintage” to me. By now we are 2 weeks past the “should have” sent date. I wondered if I could buy a vintage post card and copy it…then it hit me. I HAD some vintage postcards. Earlier this year while helping clean out my grandmother’s house I had picked up a handful of unused Christmas postcards. Now I just had to find them…..
Here are a few of them. Aren’t they fun?
Isn’t that just perfect? So I scanned it in, saved it as a graphic and got started on the front of the card.
