Vintage Patriotic Postcards

 
 
 






   

                                     I wanted to share these beautiful examples of Artist


Ellen H. Clapsaddle (1865-1934)
 

   Ellen was an American illustrator/ commercial artist from New York,
 
 in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
 
  Her style is easily recognizable and greatly admired.
 
           She is known as the most prolific souvenir/postcard and greeting card artist of her era.

My favorites include the adorable children's faces that are in

most of the illustrations.    



 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  *If you like these postcards I have more Holiday cards to share in my
 
sidebar under- PRINTABLES 
 
 

 
These Post Cards can be saved to your computer and used for craft projects.
 
You can print these on card stock,and trim them to size.
 
 Save a used TEA BAG,
 
squeeze most of the liquid out of the bag and gently rub around the edges to AGE your card.
 
 
 How to make wire holders for your vintage salt shakers:
 
 
 
Any shakers you may have around the house

 
some wire and cutters 


 
 Twist and loop twice at top to hold card or photo.
 
Cut to desired height.

 
 
 Use a postcard.
 
 
 
 


 
And you can add this to any Holiday Display!
 
 
 
 
I hope you enjoy these Patriotic Printables.
 

Have a wonderful Holiday! xo Lisa S

  4. I wonder if they appreciated the cards when they were new as much as we love them now as vintage! They are all beautiful. I especially enjoyed your simple tutorial for the card holder! I never thought of that. Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday!

    1. I think they were precious because of the communication factor. I rarely see postcards that were not written on. I know I always read them when I find one. The flag card I posted was postmarked 1917 ! Thank you for hosting and visiting. xo Lisa S
