Free Vintage Tags for Cardmaking, Journaling or Scrapbooking: Victorian Girls in the Garden (Set #1)

A set of two Victorian trade cards originally published in the late 1880s.

The first (lower) card shows a girl in a summer orchard, reaching up to pluck a ripe peach as a colourful bird sings joyfully on a bough. Her image is surrounded by a border of garden roses. A little verse below her hand reads: "Thy name is music unto me, Thy voice the sweetest melody."

The second (upper) card shows another girl surrounded by fall leaves and an overarching tree branch covered with blue violet flowers, waving a handkerchief either in greeting or farewell. The verse that accompanies this card reads: "Smile on the flowers, they bring thee Love!"

Both have blank spaces where you can add your own personal message. You can use these templates in junk journals and scrapbooking or in other graphic design projects such as gift tags and greeting cards.

You can download the high-res 6" x 3.5" @ 300 ppi JPEGs without a watermark here and here.
