"Wishing you a Very Happy Christmas" Postcard

Title

"Wishing you a Very Happy Christmas" Postcard

Description

This postcard is oriented vertically and has an off-white border around all sides with 3D impressions of bells and ribbon. In the center of this border, a white card stock sheet is seen which reads in gold, green, red, and blue decorated script, "Wishing You a Very Happy Christmas." Below this, a Santa Claus wearing an emerald green coat and cap is seen. His hat is decorated with holly leaves and red holly berries in two spots. His cap is fur-lined and has black streaks of fur within it. His face is bright red and he is facing so that he looks to the right of the card and the right side of his face is seen. His robe has gold decorations on it. This figure of Santa Claus can be opened to reveal a wreath of holly leaves and berries with ribbon and small birds around it on the piece of card stock in the center of the postcard. Under this wreath it reads, "Home folks are the dearest." The portion of the card where Santa's face is seen reads, "Amidst the joys of Christmas-tide, Its sweet, unnumbered treasures, May you be safely bound up in and enjoy endless chain of pleasure" with a place for someone to personalize the card by filling in the "To" and "From" portions of it.
