Free Valentine's Card, 2013

We asked artist Toni Toland for use of this card mainly as a hand out for a 2013 workshop on love-themed haiku. But then we thought, Why not share it with our on-line followers? So here it is, available in several formats. If you don't have a color printer, consider printing the black and white version and coloring it with markers. The text box at the bottom of the card is for writing a haiku.

Toni recently retired from teaching advertising design at Syracuse University. She first helped us in 2006, when she created a poster for that year's poster series. It proved to be one of our most popular posters. She also designed our new line of haiku cards.

Poet Marilyn Shelton has seen several of her haiku inspire posters, but in this case we applied her work to a note card. The graphic ornament and typesetting is by Toni Toland, retired from teaching advertising design at SU.

Thanks to SU's recruitment of Chinese students, Syracuse has come to be known by the Chinese as "Snow City." So it seems fitting that one of our Chinese interns, Qianyi Wang, would set the type for the Chinese version of our snowflake card.

We offer this card thanks to Jamie Santos, a tattooer at Scarab Body Arts Studio. When Jamie reached out to us, we suggested she browse our archive of haiku, and pick out a couple to illustrate as note cards. Jamie's vertical text panels also lend themselves to Chinese, so we created Chinese versions, with help from our Chinese intern, Tong Jin.
The poem, by Jennifer Groff:

Flowering trees flaunt

voluptuous silky blooms

of new spring dresses
