Younger than Springtime- That's you.

I went on a vintage greeting card buying spree again (this is the second one this year) where I bought quite a few fun old greeting cards.


These are fantastic bright pieces from "A Sunshine Card" - where there is no limit to the retina burning neon awesomeness. Sometimes I wonder why design culture doesn't revisit some of this amazing stuff more often. - like - revive this sweet, sweet party-time amazingness, PLEASE!

I'm incredibly inspired by 50s - 70s illustration, particularly on wrapping paper and greeting cards. The only thing better than this is what they say inside.

"Younger than springtime - that's you. Happy Birthday"


  1. Did you see that Walgreens has a vintage reissue section in its greeting cards department? I almost bought them all just for their glittery, swirling flourishes and embellished script!

  2. This is very beautiful. I've just created my own website to sell some pop-up cards. They're absolutely beautiful. If you are interested in pop-up cards. It is exactly what you are looking for: spring greeting cards, pop-up cards
