A New Life for a Damaged Vintage Postcard…

I had purchased a small auction lot of antique holiday postcards last year – and this was amongst them. It was blank (except for the greeting) and must have had a photo glued on at one time that was later removed - there is a little damage where the paper lifted up. I wasn’t quite sure how I could use it, but I loved the greeting design and the embossed border. I decided to sew some pretty antique mother of pearl buttons to the blank area. This will be an accessory for one of my Shanty Claus dolls.
