More vintage inspiration, this time from several cool mod cards, made by Sunshine Cards. The imprint on the back says "A Studio Card". No illustrator credit. No date, but probably late 60's-early 70's. I say "early 70's" because of the numerical code on the back suggests it might be 1971. But you can never tell with these things. These cards belong to a full set that feature the same looks and concept: fun stylized characters with a bit of real fabric or yarn, collage-like. The real bits of fabric (yarn for these two cards) are not actually on the cards themselves, but rather a photo. Adds a nice dimensionality to the cards, if you ask me. An extra bit of character to the characters.
"MINI HAPPY RETURNS!"
"But so is THE MORTGAGE, THE GROCERY BILL and the PAYMENT ON THE CAR!
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY anyway!"
Har har! Always with the corny jokes.
I'll have to scan the rest of the set. The box they came in is pretty cool as well.
