Antique French Music Cards: Free Digital Downloads

 

Cathe_Holden_Music_Card_1These beautiful vintage French music cards leapt off the shelf of an antique store and into my hand. Such beautiful work all written in pen and ink. I know nothing about reading music or French, so the only think I can tell for sure is that one is for the Clarinet and the other for the Trombone. The actual size of the two letterpress cards is aproximately 6.5″ x 4.75″ and the inked detail is amazing.Cathe_Holden_Music_Card_2 Printed to paper I think they would make lovely accents to wrap around food jar gifts, or printed to card stock, sweet gift tags or sewn together as pennant bunting. They will also make nice components for mixed media or digital collage. Click on each image below to enlarge the ephemera images for download. If you use them, I’d love to see what you make!

    What a wonderful treasure you came upon. My ideas to use them is just going round and round. As we know “without music life would b flat”. Can hardly wait to try them out and thanks so much for sharing with us.
