Old Fashioned Easter Cards
This is a collection of unique, old fashioned Easter Cards. They showcase the Easter egg especially. Many of the images contained in this hub are from Russia. They are now in the public domain, as of this writing. I give a link with each image, and would recommend checking on it before use, to make sure nothing has changed.
Not all these images are your typical Easter Egg image! I hope you enjoy viewing them. Please make sure to click on the tiny little photos, or thumbnails to see each and every photo of these Easter Eggs. There are a few, per photo shown.
Ways to Use these Images for Personal Use
The reason I like these images is that they can be used to create a personal greeting card, tag or gift bag. I would recommend only using them in this way however, as needed, and one at a time. They definitely lend a particular nostalgic "feel," that many people really like.
Vintage cards can be used today, with quite a nice effect. I like to save the image to my computer, then get it into printable form. First, I make sure my printer's color ink is all full, not lacking in any color, and make a print.
Since many of these have the words like Happy Easter, or Christ is Risen, in Russian, you can simply cut those parts out before use. It is kind of a creative cropping, if you will. I have seen people use different images in this way, and one can put on a card, or make a lovely gift back out of them as well.
Embellishing the Image
As needed, or desired, one can embellish with glitter, buttons, stickers or ribbons, lace, doilies, etc. This makes quite an impressive gift and impression on the person that receives these at Easter. I love the rich varying color schemes represented here, as it is by no means just about pastels.
Sometimes, I have to wonder if the creator of these images nearly a century ago, would be happy to know people are still enjoying viewing them today. If I were an artist, I know that would be the case for me.
Unique Easter Egg Images
While I find all these images to be interesting, the last couple of images are extra unique or interesting. I wanted to point out one in particular that was made during wartime, and it says, "Easter greetings! The military mail` comes this time fast, it brings Easter eggs at last." What a unique image it shows, of little Easter bunnies, also dressed in military garb, bringing Easter Eggs to the soldiers! What creativity at work!
I am finding that just seeing these different Easter images from other countries through the medium of post cards is fun and enriching. I am glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoyed the different vintage cards. I am so glad someone preserved them so we can see them today.
One last thought, if there is one that stands out to you especially, or one that you like the most, I would be glad to know which that is. Happy Easter!
