Alas, a JPEG can't do justice to this awesome card: not only is the woman *embossed* her fetching black top is rendered using some strange, velvety-feeling paper. (Or is it thin fabric?) Something with a pile.
One of those photographs where the more you look at it the less and less photograph-like it becomes. The backdrop would seem to be false or else painted over, judging by the chalet. Only when you look at the woman's hands--and possibly the details of the face--do you 'intuit' the photograph that at some point must have been taken.
