    Why just the two stamps on Dgn 523 and not all four Winter Fun stamps? Because only two designs were used by the USPS for the Winter Fun envelopes, and this Dragon "Card" (and we admit we're stretching the definition of "Card" on this issue, if not actually beating it to death) was originally conceived for just the envelopes. Then we decided to make them combos.
