I wanted to share a simple way to make last minute Christmas cards, and found some really lovely vintage free printable Christmas postcards online.

Postcard address link: https://tinyurl.com/ydevfmaf If you use this link instead of a stamp, I recommend you print this on a separate piece of cardstock (again changing the size to 4 x 6″) and then glue this paper to the back of the front of the postcard image. Or, you can handwrite the word Postcard and draw a T under it. Make sure you use archival ink, ie a Sharpie, a micron pen, etc.
You’ll want to save the links you’ve chosen to your computer then print it using cardstock in your printer. I use Michaels Recollections Heavyweight off-white cardstock for my postcards.
Using the links above, right click on the image and save image as, and give each image a name. Then you’ll go to the small file folder at the bottom of your screen and double click on it. It will take you to the images you’ve saved, and if you don’t see them, go to your downloads and click on the link, then go to the print icon and click on it and using the drop down box for the print size, change it to 4 x 6″ and print.
Cut out the postcard. If your printer misses one of the red border lines, take a rose red alcohol marker and a ruler…line the ruler up with the edge of the postcard and color all four sides to ensure all four borders are the same color.
If the postcard doesn’t have a sentiment, stamp one with archival ink. I used two Penny Black sentiments. One from Christmas and Love link: https://tinyurl.com/ya5botgp and the other from Joyful Sentiments link: https://tinyurl.com/yc7cuzqf ,
