Hi creative friends,
Well, 2020 has been quite a year!!
It’s definitely one we will remember for a long time….. maybe you were documenting it in your vintage postcard tag book?
Today I have for you, the very last instalment of our ‘A Year of Vintage Postcards’.
If you are new to this year long project, every month throughout 2020, I shared two new printable vintage postcards to create a collection of 24 beautiful postcards and matching journal cards.
Personally, I used the vintage postcards to make a journal with a difference…. it’s a flip book filled with these gorgeous vintage postcards.
The back of the postcards have a blank space that can be used to document events, information or simply to diarize your journey each month.
The December Vintage Postcards
For December I featured two Christmas themed cards.
The first is a Bavarian card with illuminated letters from 1911 and the second is called ‘Christmas Angels’, painted by E. H. Clapsaddle in 1902. The back side of the postcards feature the Christmas Angels on a stamp.
I’ve also included a ‘2020’ tag that you can attach to your flip tag journal, now that it is completed.
I’d love to see how you have used your year of vintage tags, so please feel free to share in our Facebook group, Simply Shabbilicious.

How to construct the postcards:
1. Print the December PDF – 2 pages (see below).
2. Cut the postcards out as one complete card (front and back) and score down the centre where the front and back of the postcards meet.
3. Fold in half along the score line and use glue to adhere the front and back sides of the postcard together.
As this is the last instalment of vintage postcards in this project, I’m including a link back to each month’s free downloads.
