Postcards, are they history?

Holiday greetings season is behind us. Many of you probably still remember the times when our mailboxes (I mean the real, metal or wooden ones) used to be filled in with postcards. In my opinion, no eCard can match a good old fashioned postcard. It’s just that good old piece of paper and handwriting that adds a special  human touch that no electronic mail can have.

So, thanks to Gordeee, impressive but mysterious artist, we can now show you some really really cool postcards. His current theme is Paris :). Some of the graphical elements he used are Grunge Floral Shapes Photoshop Brushes (not available anymore, sorry)

These are really beautiful! Great work Gordeee and thank you for sharing it with us!

And now, since we’re talking about cards, I just couldn’t help mentioning one New Year postcard (old fashioned one) we got from my cousin Davor Vrankic and his wife Silva (yes it’s similar to my name but it’s not the same :)). This one was drawn by Davor himself! (find out more about Davor Vrankic who is a great painter – artist)… also, I already wrote about him and his success in the world of art here ->)

So, here’s the unique Holiday postcard from my cousin:

I bet you like it! He’s good isn’t he 🙂

I just can’t think of a better way to show a sign of appreciation other than do something with your own hands. I know, Davor is a real talent, but that is not the point here. The point is to take some time and dedicate it to someone by creating something with your own hands. That is the point.

Thank you Gordee and thank you Davor for your great works!

Yours,

Silvia

  1. Those are lovely postcards. I still enjoy getting and sending postcards. I’m a member of postcrossing. For every postcard I send I get one in return.

  2. K.G. I don’t really know of any, but you just gave me an idea. In one of my future posts I will publish a tutorial and a postcard template.

  3. Hi Silvia, My name is Victoria and I am an old friend of Silva.
    I am trying to get in touch with her but since she moved to the States I lost contact with her. Could you kindly do me a BIG-BIG favour en tell her to get in touch with her friends in Rome? If she lost my contact details too tell her I am in facebook 😉
    THANK YOU, Victoria
