Title

"My Christmas Offering" Postcard with Poinsettias

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and has four poinsettias around the left and top sides of a red and gold frame. The background of the card is a foggy mixture of white, grays, greens, and blues. The stems of the poinsettias are all behind the central frame and image except for one in the bottom left corner of the postcard. The frame has swirled edges and is rimmed and decorated with a gold pattern of lined boxes. Inside the frame is an image of a young person wearing a white/silver coat, hat, and boots which are lined with white fur. The figure looks to be walking toward the right side of the card and carries a tan bag over his/her right shoulder. The shadow of the person is evident behind them. Under the white/silver coat, it is seen that they are wearing red pants. The background of this image is a pale green. The bottom center-right of the card reads "My Christmas Offering" in gold script.
