Art Deco Ladies Luxurious Die-Cut Cards

These beautiful cards were created in the 1920s and '30s when ladies' bridge parties were all the rage.

We just adored them!... And knew they were the perfect inspiration for a new line of unique Greeting Cards.

We have reproduced them as they were originally: die-cut and embellished with gold foil. We provide a dark card with a deco pattern which makes an ideal background to frame or otherwise display the image, and a decorative envelope so that one of these lovely cards can be shared with a friend!

We are proud to announce our newest book Vintage Costume Inspirations Featuring the costumes of your dreams!

The images in this book are from European costume catalogs of the mid-twentieth century. We adore them for their imaginative variety and inspirational potential. Any object can be a costume! The manner in which the costumed figures are juxtaposed on the page is whimsical, useful and delightfully inspiring! At Halloween, it seems the same tired costumes are trotted out year after year. This book, in its freshness and wild notions, offers you entirely new concepts that will lead your original thinking when the time comes to fashion your own, super wonderful costume for this year's festivities! Of course, there are too many good ones here to do in just one year, so you will have a treasure of inspiration, in these pages for many, many years to come.

These costume ideas and designs will inspire the seasoned costume seeker, the fantastic costume dreamer, and anyone else with imagination, to put their wildest or most beautiful costume dreams to action! And soon, you will attend balls, parties, compete in costume contests–or perhaps merely walk the streets–in the guise of ladybugs, atomic bombs, a donut, a high tension wire, or a box of chocolates, or so much more.
