INSIDE GREETING: Hoping that your Birthday brings an Extra big share of the nicest things.
We plucked these images from our rich collection of greeting cards; most are from the 1950's. While this era's design sensibilities are not often celebrated, this offering of stuffed animals, adorable puppies, smiling elephants and more has a naive charm that is very appealing. The die cutting emphasizes the cards' blunt graphic appeal. The colors are vivid, and the appropriately lighthearted greetings are suitable for general birthday use. Here a group on children in festive party hats and their puppy bring birthday greetings.
