Guys, I have a new obsession! Printable Vintage Botanical Illustration Cards made from vintage illustrations! I keep finding more and more vintage botanical illustrations and prints that I just adore! Plus, I keep finding (that whole Pinterest addiction thing) new ways to incorporate more vintage botanical illustrations in our home decor projects.
So, of course, when I find what I think are great ideas, I just can’t wait to share them with you! Aren’t you lucky? (I tell my husband that all the time!)
Printable Vintage Botanical Illustration Cards

The vintage botanical illustration cards were designed to be printed on 8-1/2 x 11 inch cardstock or paper and trimmed to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ folded). These cards will fit perfectly in an A2 envelope and are the perfect size for mailing, sticking in a gift basket or affixing to a gift package.
Once you print the cards, simply cut along the solid line. You can purchase A2 envelopes at your local stationery store, paper supply store, crafting store like JoAnn Fabrics, Michaels or Hobby Lobby. You can even purchase them online on Amazon.
For your convenience, I’ve put together a list of supplies that you might need for this vintage botanical illustration cards project.
- Cardstock paper
- Color printer (or you can use a print service like Staples, Office Depot, The UPS Store, etc.)
- Paper Trimmer
- A2 Envelopes

I thought this first set represented a nice variety of vintage botanical illustrations. There are just soooo many to choose from, but I wanted you to have a nice assortment. I think these cards are perfect for just about any card giving occasion, like a birthday, anniversary, thank you, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation, housewarming or just because.
I also found some vintage illustrations that have a more masculine feel and will be perfect for Father’s Day or the outdoors lover. Can’t wait to share all these fantastic Vintage Botanical Illustration Cards with you over the coming weeks!
