"With Hearty Christmas Greetings"

Title

"With Hearty Christmas Greetings"

Description

This postcard has gold trim around all of its sides with holly leaves and berries in the corners and middles of the sides. Inside the gold trim is a pale blue background with a darker blue netting pattern. Three elves wearing green clothing, pointed hats, and pointed shoes are seen on the postcard. The elf on the top left is mostly covered by a gold 3D embellishment of Father Christmas driving a sleigh pulled by a reindeer and holding a small tree and assorted toys. This embellishment also covers some of a painting on the postcard which shows a shepherd and his sheep in a pasture at sunset or sunrise. In the center left of the postcard, it reads "With Hearty Christmas Greetings." To the right and below this are two other elves which have upset expressions on their faces. The elf on the right looks like it is trying to run from the writing, while the elf on the bottom left has fallen on its stomach and looks back at the inscription with an upset face.
