    Hi! I am glad you like the cover and card!

    The vignette on top left is the so-called “Christkindl-Leitzettel”. It is cancelled at the post office, where you give up the letter. All letters with that vignette are then sent to the post office in Christkindl, where the special cancellation is applied.

    All the best,
    Florian
