Make Ten Vintage Christmas Cards
with our NEW e-book series,"Cards with a Past."

The Victorians invented many of the Christmas characters and icons that we celebrate today. They even gave us Santa Claus, distilled from a number of gift-giving predecessors into the merry, red-suited elfin figure first depicted by artist Thomas Nast in 1863. The ten handmade cards in this book are based on some of the most beautiful and evocative Victorian Christmas greetings that have survived for more than a century.

You can make your own unique and dazzling Christmas cards, based on vintage images from bygone days!


Entirely NEW, this is the second e-book of our series,"Cards with a Past."

Each e-book is published in a convenient, high-quality PDF file format. You download it to your computer for reading or printing. The vintage images included are high-resolution, in pre-sized format, ready to print at a copy center or on your home ink-jet printer!
