Greeting Card Campaign: 12-08 National Brownie Day

Download National Brownie Day card here.
National Brownie Day is December 8. This is one food day that most of our wives, girlfriends and even our Moms can get behind. For some reason many, if not most, women have a deep and abiding need for chocolate. There may be some as yet undiscovered nutrient in chocolate that causes this. Some nutritionists believe that eating chocolate makes you feel good, because it increases levels of serotonin in your brain. Serotonin is a chemical neurotransmitter secreted in the brain that helps you feel good and enhances your mood. One thing we do know is that many women experience lowered serotonin levels in the 7 to 10 days prior to their menstrual periods. This could explain why often have powerful cravings for chocolate. To most men, however, chocolate is a snack food rather than a religious experience.  The chocolatey, chewy brownie is, perhaps one of the more ideal chocolate delivery systems there is.

Tell your sweetie how much you appreciate her with the gift of chocolate today and this downloadable, printable, National Brownie Day Card. Just click on the caption below the picture of a chocolate Brownie. 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 right side up.  If you're confused, I encourage you to give it a try with a practice sheet.
