Greeting Card Campaign: 10-7 Rose Day

Click here to download card
On October 7, 1986, Ronald Reagan  signed a resolution, making the rose the United States' official flower.  The signing took place, appropriately enough, in the White House Rose Garden, of course! Send your sweetie a rose or, if you can't afford one or don't live in East Texas Rose Country, send her a Rose Day greeting card.

Just click on the caption below the picture of the Rose at the top left.  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 side fold card, so when it prints, be sure to tell your printer it's in "landscape" format so you get the whole file. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. Much quicker that way.  Then go tell her she is your Yellow Rose of Texas, Cherokee Rose of Georgia, Wild Prairie Rose of Iowa or North Dakota, Red Rose of New York or whatever your favorite variety out of the more than 150 types of roses available out there.
