Today, I’d like to share an image of a shaped Victorian Christmas card. These are my favourite types of cards because they’re all so different and unusual. This one has a Yule log design.

Dating from the 1880s, the card is entirely flat but it’s embossed and has a three-dimensional effect. ‘Bringing in the Yule log’ was a tradition when a large log was brought home on Christmas Eve and burned for the 12 nights of Christmas until Twelfth Night.
