I found a few more Vintage Post Cards from the Netherlands. I wasn't sure where they came from as far as how these were packages etc. I believe this new set I have gives us a bit of a clue. You can see at the top of this card that there is a drawing of some black scissors and a black dotted line where the person who cut it out did not cut it exactly tothe line leaving the guidelines on the post card. I think these may have been from a magazine or some sort of booklet that had cut out postcards. I have two others I will be sharing soon. They are berry cute !
Adorble Completely Embossed Vintage Strawberry Shortcake Board Game Valentine's Day Card from 1983....
This is one of the newest card in my collection. It is a Valentine's Day Card. It is also a board game with a metal spinner and 6 character game pieces you can punch out. This card is very, very big. It has 5 panels.The graphics on this card are so cute. There are images here you may have never seen before. It comes with the games instruction on the back. It is completely embossed. Front cover, game pieces and the board all embossed! I just love this card so much ❤
This is another Beautiful Strawberry Shortcake card from Mexico.
It is Die-cut. The words are in Spanish and it translates to:
Por donde pasas
Where you go,
Siempre riegas el camino de alegria
You always water the path of joy
This is one of my favorite ones from my Mexican collection.
I love the watering can so much too!!!
These are a wonderful set of Vintage Steno Pad style Notebooks from Italy. I have had
these for quite some time. Took me so long to finally take the pictures and set it up the way I wanted them. I love how these look. This is my favorite style of Shortcake art personally. At the bottom I included a neato sketch of one of these notebooks from the original art of my friend Barbi Sargent the Original Creator of the Strawberry Shortcake Character.
These are just wonderful ! art from around 1977 to 1979 . I know this because I have the sketch by Barbi Sargent from the example below from 1977 and the rest I have on some Vintage Greeting cards dated 1979.
This is such a cute set!
This is a cute Valentine's Day card from 1984. The front has Strawberry Shortcake, Raspberry Tart, and Huckleberry hanging out. On the inside is a large Strawberry with a cute picture of Custard in front of it. This card is die-cut on a thin semi gloss double folded paper. It is not embossed. The colors are very vibrant and bright. Graphics are also very crisp and focused. There are other versions of this card out there. This is the first one I own. Hope to gather the est in my future hunts !
This beautiful Strawberry Shortcake Easter card is also a Spring Greeting Card. I was so delighted to trade
with Amy my Berry Pal on Instagram for this greeting card. This gorgeous egg shaped card has 3 amazing panels.
This is packed with Spring time fun. None of the images have a specifically Easter theme to them. I think the shape of
the card is the only thing that you can really tell with the exception of course of the wording on the front of the card and the inside wording on the footer, lol.
This card is very bright and colorful. This one is not embossed. The card is from 1983. I'm loving the strawberry vines going
all around each frame. So awesome!! Thank you so much for the trade Amy !!!
I have admired this lovely card online for years. It is quite a Unicorn in it's rarity. I was so happy to have found this beauty last week, It is a Valentine;s Day card for a Niece who is cute as a doll.This little girl of course is holding the best doll ever, Strawberry Shortcake.
I can't tell you for certain that it is from 1983 although it is marked 1983 on the back of the card two times. These markings look more modern and I was under the impression that this was an older vintage style drawing, but it just may be a newer card after all. Either way, it is super adorable and berry hard to find.
It took me a while to photograph this lovely calendar, but I finally finished last night.
It is a 16 Month Calendar for 1985 to 1986. I have two other similar Calendars on our Vintage Calendar page that are 1983 and 1985. Those are both 12 Month Calendars. This specific one has 4 extra images on the it. It is so cute. Some of these images have been featured on Greeting Cards as well. Hope you like it.
This cute little vintage Strawberry Shortcake Card is to big to be a gift tag but a little too small to be a regular card. Its somewhere in between. I do believe it was intended to be a greeting card though I do not know how it was packaged. It may have come with several others in a pack. I love how simple it is yet still is as adorable as can me. It has the unique marking on the bottom back of Celebration Arts. This is AGC 1980
This is another post card I recently acquired from the Netherlands
in a set of 6 different ones.

Only three of the cards had a message on them. These cards are printed so beautifully and
have a very shiny finish on the front. Just lovely !
This is a beautiful Vintage Strawberry Shortcake Easel card featuring Angel Cake and Souffle.This is the largest Angel Cake Greeting card I have owned yet. It measures 5 1/2 x 7 4/8 and has them on the front and back. It is only embossed on the front side, but Die-cut on both. It is a "thinking of you" type greeting. The colors are bright and crisp. I have one other one similar to this one (from the U.S.) to share that is a bit smaller. Both have the same image. I also have one that is from Canada that I am also including below for your reference....
Below is the smaller Carlton Cards CANADA Birthday version....
I just received this card today. I have only seen one other one like it before. It is so sweet. This is one of those larger cards.
The closed card: Measures 9 IN X 5 6/8 IN .
Opened up it: Measures 9 IN X 14 13/16.
The front of the card has Strawberry Shortcake herself giving Lemon Meringue some tulips.. Lemon's right side is die-cut out of the card. When you open the card she pops right
back into the paper where she was die-cut out of partly and into the inside image.
Inside you find Blueberry Muffin , Huckle Berry Pie, Cherry Cuddler and Raspberry Tart. Also included are Custard , Pupcake , Mr. Sun up in the sky with decorated eggs all over the grass. A couple of butterflies as well. The card is also embossed on each panel.I love the giant characters and the wonderful pop of colors this card has. It is such a lovely reminder of Easter and Spring. I'm so happy to add this lovely to my collection! AGC 1984
This card is a coloring card that is more modern. You can tell mainly because it has the two different copyright years on the back and a bar code. There are some vintage cards that do have a bar code on them, but they have only one copyright on them and yr.
I love the uncolored versions of Blueberry Muffin and Raspberry Tart in this one. I bought it mainly because of them. I have almost all of the modern Vintage style cards that were made. I figure I ought to since I have the real vintage ones. I stick to the Vintage style ones only though, not the new style Shortcake cards where they completely changed her outfit and overall style. I thought it was interesting how the butterfly ( Marmalade maybe ?) looks a little worried on the front of this picture. Maybe they know that TCFC were going to be changing the look of these guys soon, LOL. I will create a page with the modern cards on it as well for reference soon :).
This sweet little Hi card is also from Mexico Rosita Fresita.
The message is:
Hi, Ojala pudiera encontrar...
Hi, I wish I could find..
A mas personas tan maraviollosas como tu
More people as wonderful as you
from 1983 !
