postcard perfect: lion hologram card from zoobic safari

Pin It

Photobucket

I’ve got this card when we visited Zoobic Safari on my Jared’s birthday. Although it was costly compared to the usual cards I normally buy, this one is just fascinating since this is actually the first time I’ve seen a hologram postcard. The hind legs of the tiger moves as you switch the cards position, cool, right? Although, I have no plans of sending this for personal swaps, I have got a perfect way to use this card, as a freebie on my travel blog. Check out the details on my travel blog’s very first giveaway post.  I look forward to your entries, right? :)

I wish I’d bought another one for me to keep as part of my collection, but imagining the delight of the person who will win this once the giveaway ends is enough to put a smile on my own face. I will just keep the photograph as its memento.
