VINTAGE POSTCARD


I'd like to share this gorgeous postcard from the 1950s. My aunt bought it while vacationing in Spain, she said it was love at first sight. Too bad another matching card she bought is now missing. There is embroidery and a taffeta skirt with sequins sewn onto the card, double backed with another card. Very creative. I would love to try this technique out although the post office machines will probably rip a postcard like this to bits.

Its absoultely gorgeous and I can understand why your auntie bought it. I'd love to try it too but like you said it pointless if you can't send it with post offices using machines these days. Its a shame they don't make postcards like this anymore

Oh I love it! I've been making embellished postcards/notecards but include them with an envelope to keep them safe, so go for it!

I have one of those postcards!

I found it in a rickety little tourist shop in Sicily- it has a milkmaid on it & her skirt is embroidered.

I had to have it. It's neat to see there are more out there. =^.^=
