Free Vintage Christmas Angel Cards

It's Christmas in July for me, because I'm creating this page on July 25, 2009. But that's OK. Even though these vintage angel cards were created for Christmas, they're appropriate any time of the year.

I'm a big fan of bold colors, so many of the images I chose feature them. There are many vintage angel Christmas cards in my personal collection but I chose the ones I thought would have the most universal appeal. I hope you enjoy using them as much as I like sharing them.

It's a little hard to pin down the exact dates most of these cards were printed but I do have that information on one of them. The horizontal card that reads "A Happy Christmas to You" is actually marked with the year 1726. I don't know about you but I find it amazing that something so beautiful and fragile could travel down through the years and end up on our computers. It's such an interesting time to be alive. :-)

Thanks, Catlyn, both for your comment and for having a WordPlay hub bookmark file! :-)

I hope you enjoy using these Christmas cards. I used some of them to make handmade cards last holiday season, decorated with glitter glue. They turned out beautiful (if I do say so myself).

Hi, jill. It is amazing, isn't it? I love vintage art in general but it makes me particularly happy when I run across something like that.
