Just in time for holiday crafts: we're pleased to annouce this new collection of Victorian & vintage holiday images from Lunagirl. This lovely collection includes over 250 images originally from antique French, German & Italian postcards sent to celebrate Christmas and New Years Day. We've scanned the cards as high-resolution tiffs, done some restoration work and embellishment, then finally saved them on CD as 300-dpi jpgs for you to browse and print.

Most of these are photos, although some are illustrations. Many of the cards have greetings in various languages, either original or added by us, but you can of course alter them and add your own messages as well. We have removed major creases and tears, and in some cases embellished or enhanced. Usually we have removed the stamps, but we left the original little French stamps on some, as many buyers like them. I've also included scans of the backs of a few cards, for the lovely old handwriting.

You'll find angels, children's portraits, children in the snow, ladies, romantic couples, happy new year & more. Enjoy them as printable digital ephemera for your altered art & scrapbooking, or create unique antique style tags and greeting cards for the winter holidays!
