I’ll let you in on a little blogging secret…when I post free digital downloads of vintage finds or graphics rather than sharing full-on craft tutorials, it’s most likely because I’m tied-up with other crafty commitments for the day. It’s all good- my days are filled with writing blog posts for SC Johnson’s Family Economics, crafting for the fabulous Country Living magazine, working on my book idea, designing label graphics for WorldLabel.com, preparing kits for my classes at The Creative Connection (next week!), working out the deets of my classes at SPARK and finishing up some logo projects (I tried to quit designing logos cold-turkey, but it’s been a bit tough!) So in lieu of craft projects, you’ll be the beneficiary of freebies and the occasional crafty suggestions. I would love your help in commenting with any of your ideas for using the graphics as well. Thank you!
Here are two beautiful antique post card fronts and one blank (Photoshopped) back for your pleasure. (Click on images for larger size.) I just adore the little inset image of forget-me-nots, cake and gift on the birthday greeting. I think the Birthday postcard would make a fantastic T-shirt iron-on graphic embellished with Martha Stewart Glitter paint as a birthday gift for a friend to wear on her special day! One more idea: Reduce images, print to iron-on transfer sheets for DARK shirts, iron on to scrap leather to create a beautiful patch to sew on to a handmade gift. Here’s some info to get you started: Working with Leather: Image Transfers & Sewing Techniques.
