Finland - Multiview Postcard 20-11-2008

Thanks to Emilia: Postcrossing official card sent from Finland on 20-11-2008 with Christmas stamp.
Cheerfull Christmas stamps! The designer of the Christmas stamps is Julia Vuori, who has charmed children and grown-ups alike with her adult uniqueness and childlike merriness in her illustrations for children’s picture books and art books as well as her humorous animal cartoons.

The stamp mainly for Christmas cards shows a big and a small bear traipsing through a snowy forest: they are getting their Christmas tree. The first class Christmas stamp shows forest animals gathered together around a Christmas tree for a round game. Both stamps are self-adhesive.

Transparent Frosty Night stamp is believed to be the world’s first transparent stamp. It depicts beutifully the magic of Northern winter Night . The stamp was designed by Nina Rintala.
