Here's a two-fer -- a design card that's also a character card. Santy brightening Christmas.

Dad usually painted eighteen new designs per year, year in and year out. In the middle of 1956, he went on sabbatical from Disney and went to Europe for a year to paint (taking wife and children with him.) He still had his regular load of Christmas cards to do, however, and holed up on the Spanish island of Majorca for half a month, turning them out. He mailed the designs back to California Artists before publishing deadlines. Happily, all of them arrived safe and sound.

Here are more Ralph Hulett Christmas cards.
