An Olde Christmas Greeting

This is an olde handmade Christmas card. It was posted from Los Angeles, California on December 17, 1926 addressed to an auntie of mine from her bachelor uncle. The card is completely hand cut, drawn, painted and printed. Although...it looks like J.B didn't finish filling in the Wiseman's face.
The white is actually silver and the script on the envelope cover is just as flourishing as the inside greeting. J.B. made this himself because the script is identical to other letters I have which he wrote to his family back here in Canada. I think it is as pretty and fresh today as the day J.B. Sloane put it together and placed it in the mail to Auntie.
