Vintage Pop-Up Valentines

Valentine Greetings:
Down love's highway let us stray,
We two forever, side by side,
The honey-moon will light our way,
And Cupid will be our only guide.

A friend of mine found these old pop-up cards in a box of family memorabilia. They appear to be from the 1930's. I love how ornate and lacy they are. The detailed cutting around the bower makes for nice shadows.
