Free Vintage Kids Valentine Cards

I absolutely love these colorful vintage kids Valentine cards. They come from different eras but seem to be mostly from the mid-20th century.

Some of the expressions on these cards aren’t heard much these days. An example is the sock saying “‘Darn’ it.” People still say “darn it,” of course, just not in reference to sewing up holes in their socks. I’m sure many of the crafters who visit this site will know what darning is, but how many people actually darn their socks any more? Arcane references like that are part of what makes these cards charming. Also cute is the fact that the people who created these kids valentine cards had no fear of being corny, because the designs were aimed at children. So this is your opportunity to be as corny as you want this Valentine’s Day; just blame it on the art.

  30. Susan O'Neal Says:

    Love your art. Can you explain how to download them after I click on them to this computer novice great-grandma?

  31. Holiday Crafts Says:

    Hi, Susan. Once you click on the art, just right-click (if you have a PC) or control-click (if you have a Mac) your mouse and select to save it to your hard drive. You can then save it to your desktop or, if you want to, you can create a folder to save it in.

    What a great find. When I become more computer savey I will be able to share some of my finds.
