Jolly Wishes, Vintage Style

These cards belonged to my grandmother. I’m taking a guess from the style of art, they date back to around the 1930’s. To make cards affordable they were printed using only two or three colors. It was a limitation but still gave a very specific look. Keeping a minimal color palette makes the colors stronger. Card sizes were small, about 4  1/2″ x 5″.

When she falls down, her outfit is still perfect. That’s why she’s smiling.

In the 1930’s Scottie dogs were found everywhere from clothing to souvenirs to Christmas cards.

I don’t see any yellow snow. Good dogs.
