i discovered this fantastic santa in a crate of vintage holiday cards at a local antique store.
this particular saint nick instantly captured my heart for four reasons:
i am a sucker for stripes.
there is no mention on the card of company, designer, or year.
i'm guessing somewhere in the sixties?
the card is flocked with red velvet
which transports me instantly back to my childhood.
our early seventies home had two rooms
which were covered in flocked foil wallpaper.
i was smitten with the velvety stuff.
check out this fabulous lettering
from the inside of the card...
this is what a one dollar treasure from an artist date does for me.
ho ho ho!
