A Robin's Christmas EMBROIDERED ENVELOPE
Average Retail Price: $4.80CAN ($5.70US)
Design Details... This embroidered envelope bears a 5-CENT ‘POSTAGE STAMP’ of a FLUFFY-BREASTED ENGLISH ROBIN. This stamp and the lower-right edge of the envelope are embellished with SPRIGS OF HOLLY. The postmaster’s ‘INK STAMP’ (reading “We wish you a very”) leads directly to your beautifully ‘penned’ greeting... MERRY CHRISTMAS... which holds the illusion of having been written with pen & ink. You’ve sealed your envelope with A BUTTON CLOSURE AND RIBBON and the simple addition of a ribbon hanger converts your envelope into a pretty, useful and unusual Christmas ornament.
