Currier and Ives Alphabet Freebie


One of my favorite Christmas carols is Sleigh Ride. Either with or without lyrics, it doesn't really matter because the song is wonderful both ways. In the lyrics of the song it mentions "a picture print by Currier and Ives." I wonder how many people know what that means? Could you identify a Currier and Ives china print if you saw it?

My mother was always pointing things out to my sister and me that were part of our cultural education. I wonder how many 15 year olds have even heard of Currier and Ives?

Well anyway, I have created a freebie alphabet based on a Currier and Ives print called American Farm Scenes 4. I have combined the print with the colors of the china patterns to make a unique alphabet that can go with any heritage pictures.

But of course you can also use it with my up coming freebie, Sleigh Ride Collection.

I just tried it and it puts me thru all the way to the actual download window on my computer. I think it may have been a Blogger.com issue. Please try again and if you still can't download it, then email me and I will send you the link.

This is really a classy looking alpha. I love the beveling, making for sharp, crisp lines. I'm also partial to shiny things ... kinda like a raccoon ... so I thank you, sincerely, for your time, creativity, and generosity.
