I was so happy to find this beautiful Birthday card recently. I shared a note card version with this image last year that came in a little mini folder with light pink envelopes as a set (see images below) . This one has the same image, but is a larger greeting card for a Birthday. I have added a side by side so you can see the size and print differences. This larger gift card version is printed with lighter colors and is printed in a thinner paper that has been folded twice. The note card version is on a heavier card stock that is much more vibrant and bright. You can really see the difference in how the ink appears on the side by side image below. This Birthday Card version is by a company called RUST CRAFT that is in Brampton, Ontario CANADA. It still has the trade mark Strawberry Shortcake and a copyright "Those Characters From Cleveland" on the back. The Note Card ones are made by American Greetings 1985. Unfortunately the Canadian Cards are for the most part not marked with a date, But i'm pretty sure it's from mid to early 80's. Hope you have a nice weekend all.
