Unlike a regular French postcard, the carte-lettre folded in half with a private message inside. The recipient tore off the perforated edge to reveal the contents. My carte-lettre here contained a blase illustration of cloudy skies with a rose Victorian die-cut added. But what I really loved about this piece of ephemera was the exterior ink stain! And, at 5.5 by 8 inches, you have lots of possibilities, from journal cover or ATC background. Gothic, sad, tearful, or just wondrously perfectly imperfect, artistical accident. What do you see?
