Antique Postcards with Bird Prints

This set of beautiful bird prints both came from a 1920’s bird book, and show birds resting on evergreen branches.  They are perfect for framed art,  and would make lovely greeting cards as well.  I’ve included two printables using one of the bird images, layered over 2 antique postcard images that I previously shared..

This bird is called a Coal Titmouse.

I’m sure those of you who are avid bird-watchers will recognize this bird as a Waxwing.  It reminds me of a cardinal.  Since this image shows snow on the evergreen branches, I think it would be pretty used on a Christmas card.

Here is the waxwing image, layered over two different antique postcard images (original postcard images can be found here and here).

If you’d like to layer the bird image over another image yourself, it’s easy to do with Picmonkey.  Just open the image below first, then select this PNG image as an overlay (click on the butterfly shape), and size the bird to your liking.  Most of the background has been removed from this image.

  1. Beautiful!

  2. Oh thank you thank you thank you … both prints evoked such wonderful memories. The black -capped Chickadee was my mother’s favorite and the Cedar Waxwing my father’s. All smiles and tears all around.

  3. These really beautiful cards!

    Angie, I ADORE your blog, your decorating style is the BEST…I’m redoing my house from fancy Italian to chippy shabby farmhouse and I’ve gotten so many great ideas from you.
    I adore birds also, thank you for the free bird printables, I have bird feeders everywhere out here. We are on five acres just outside Springfield, Missouri.
    Please keep up all the wonderful posts…you’re truly an inspiration!
    Linda
