Greeting Card Campaign: National Ice Cream Day

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan (Republican) officially declared July as National Ice Cream Month, and established National Ice Cream Day as the third Sunday in July.  Why celebrate?
  1. Why not?
  2. Our womenfolk LOVE ice cream?
  3. It keeps cows occupied.
  4. It encourages cute pictures of babies putting their faces into ice cream cones.
  5. It gives us an excuse to drag out the old ice cream freezer

This year (2013) we celebrate National Ice Cream Day on Sunday, July 21, 2013.  That date is also  National Junk Food Day.  It's something of a coincidence that they fall on the same day this year.  I'll also be posting an NJFD card for the 21st of July since that's a fixed-date holiday, whereas National Ice Cream Day is on a specific day of the week. 

This card is a side fold card, so the only trick to printing it is to make sure the text on both sides is the same way up.  It's not opposite facing like a top fold card.  I'm working on a CD collection of pdf files for every holiday for every day of the year so you can keep 'em coming like clockwork.  Feel free to download the images and slap them on a full page in your word processor or publishing software.  Print on cardstock front and back both sides facing the same way (flipped on the short side if you're using a printer that does double sided printing).

Have fun.  Bring your wife ice cream in bed.  I find that an effective technique for encouraging National Ice Cream Day celebrations. After you've enjoyed your ice cream, do something energetic to work off the calories. Be creative.
