Free Vintage Christmas Cards: Baby Jesus and Nativity Scenes

December 6th, 2014 Holiday Crafts Posted in Angels and Cherubs, Christmas, Free Greeting Cards, Free Vintage Art, Jesus | 6 Comments »

I had a request to post some spiritual vintage Christmas cards. Although there weren’t a lot of these type of vintage Christmas cards in my collection, I was able to find some nativity scenes; images of Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus; Jesus Christ in the arms of Christmas angels; and even a little shepherd who happens upon the manger scene. There’s also an image of Jesus Christ as a little boy, looking very powerful and peaceful. I’d have to say that one is my favorite.

You can use these images to create Christmas cards that will be an inspiration to others during the holidays! If you prefer to send Christmas ecards instead, though, Hallmark and some other ecard providers have some beautiful ones. The selection these days is almost as good as for print cards.

One of the things I love most about vintage art — especially vintage Christmas cards — is the quality of the paintings. I would say that some of them below are on a par with the gorgeous art you would find in the Vatican. On that note, if you’d like to see a variety of religious-themed images from the Vatican as well as photos of the Vatican itself, visit the Vatican City Pictures blog.

I hope you find a good use for these vintage Christmas cards. Please feel free to leave a comment telling us what you did with them. You could be an inspiration to others. Thanks, and have a wonderful holiday!
