A Merry Christmas Tree Pull Open Postcard

Title

A Merry Christmas Tree Pull Open Postcard

Description

This postcard is vertically oriented. It has a thick border around all sides of holly leaves, vines, and berries in gold and red. Inside the border is a 3D impression of a small pine tree in a pot with a pale blue bow around it. After the 2nd tier of leaves on the tree from the top is a pale blue bow. On either side of the trunk of the tree is the phrase "A Merry Christ-mas." The tree itself is a pale purple gradient. On the right side of the inner portion of the card is a thin, small piece of pale blue thread. When pulled, the inner part of the postcard opens to reveal Santa Claus in a red, white-fur-lined coat and hat with blue pants and black boots and a brown belt about his middle. Santa is seen placing a gold ball ornament on a small evergreen tree already decorated with a variety of ornaments. The tree stands on a table with a white tablecloth and a few ornaments and toys under it. The side of the white tablecloth may have been meant to read "A Merry Christmas," but all that is visible on the postcard is "A M Chri."
