Greetings from Mont Blanc Glacier, Vintage Postcard
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Monique Bonnin

 

Monique Bonnin is a cross-stitch designer with a beautiful collection of vintage-postcard-like motifs, exploring all sorts of themes and styles from greeting cards to holiday postcards. This time she takes us back to the turn of the 19th century, when the very first tourists arrived in Chamonix to view the Mont Blanc mountain, the highest peak in Europe, and went on to discover with wonder the Mer de Glace, a giant glacier that lies at its feet.

 

Hardly equipped for the trip, elegant ladies in long dresses, heeled leather boots and large hats set off to discover the glacier, accompanied by local guides who roped them up to avoid them falling into its treacherous crevices. A small train was even built to transport both gentlemen and ladies as close as possible to the ice.

 

Today, due to climate change, the glacier has sadly already melted by almost a half and there is additional reason to feel nostalgic for a vanished world.

 

The postcard is cross stitched in sepia and white tones to render the feel of vintage postcards and the natural linen used as a background is a perfect tone. Detail of mountain ranges, snow and rocks are rendered with great realism, in cross stitch and half stitch.

 

The final touch, the vintage French "Marianne" stamp from the 90's is perfectly recognizable. The postmark stamped MONT BLANC features the date 1992 as if the antique card had been rediscovered and posted almost 100 years later.
