Merry Christmas Santa Claus Face and Holly Plant Imprint

Title

Merry Christmas Santa Claus Face and Holly Plant Imprint

Description

The details of this leather postcard are largely from imprinting, giving them a 3D quality. Around all sides is a lined design and inside of the edging on each of the four corners is a marking like that from a staple or something which punctured it and left a black mark. The top left of the card reads "Merry Christmas" and shows the imprint of a holly branch with leaves and three holly berries. Intermixed with the berries is a Santa Claus face with a cap and a long beard. There is a slight green and red hue to this imprint on the postcard.
