Greeting Card Campaign: 10-16 Dictionary Day

Click here to download the card.
October 16th is Dictionary Day. Today is the birthday of American lexicographer Noah Webster, father of our modern dictionary. This is a great day to play Scrabble or Boggle or work a crossword puzzle or word search - one of those other wonderful word skills honing games. It's also Learn a Word Day. There are even a couple of really good Word of the Day websites that will send you a word each day to help expand your vocabulary.

It's also a great day to tell your true love that she defines you with this great Dictionary Day cardJust click on the caption below the picture of the Dictionary. The link will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs. Remember, instead of printing from Google Docs, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Download" and copy the file to your own computer.  Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you use and print the card from there. For some reason Google Docs doesn't handle fonts well, even though they are supposed to be embedded in the PDF document itself.

This is a top fold card, so when it prints, be sure to tell your printer it's in "portrait" format so you get the whole file. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. This also flips the inside upside down from the outside when you print in portrait mode, so that, when you fold it over, the inside comes out rightside up.  If you're confused, I encourage you to give it a try with a practice sheet. Or get out your dictionary and look up "confused".  It won't help, but at least you'll know you're doing it wrong.

Hint: Write "You define me, Love (insert your name here) inside.
