the romance of vintage travel….
My obsession with random mid-century vintage playful doodads has no bounds folks. I created this series of View-tastic pop up cards based on a short-lived interest **aka wormhole (thanks EBAY) ** in scenic linen postcards, stereo cameras, tower viewers and the almighty View-Master.
There is something romantic about how folks use to take simple car trips for vacation each year.
It was an era when most folks traveled by car (air was a still a luxury) and hit the road on summer months.
They would take a few fun stereo photos (it was a HUGE hobby back in the day) or buy postcards of kookie roadside attractions to remember the trip.
This card series is perfect for that gal or guy who loves a little nostalgia, is obsessed with Mad Men (last series folks!), loves traveling or has contemplated starting their own “ Bakelite collection.”
There are three cards in this series. A poolside “Happy Birthday” party view, a desert sunset “Love U” view and “Happy Valentine’s Day” sunbathing beach fun view.
The back of the card features more matching vintage travel photos and an area for writing.
This is a standard greeting size (A7 5x7 inches) handmade pop up card and it comes with a red envelope.
