The illustrations are called "balloon and boxes". Illustrating a girl holding on to a yellow balloon. You however may see something completely different.

The card has a light coat of varnish on to prevent smudging.

I do not recommend direct sun light as this can make the cards illustration to fade.

I also made a little stamp to go along with the cards, see the picture of the envelopes. The envelopes are embossed with the sun/star.
