This looks in the Chinese style (especially the lady's apparel) rather than Japanese, and I don't recognize the artist's kanji or seal. As to the foxing, unless the print had large resale or sentimental value, I don't think it would be worth the expense of a conservator. As to the Christmas cards, small re-cuts of classic Japanese prints, most frequently winter scenes by Hiroshige, were issued frequently in the ~1950s, including by Unsodo and other well-known re-cut publishers. These can be nice decorations but have only nominal value.
