Just My Type

 I found a picture of an old typewriter -remember those? It gave birth in my wee little mind to a perfect Valentine's Day card. Please play along.
 Download this image here and print on a piece of white card stock
Download this here and print on the inside of the previous image.
Print these on a separate piece of card stock.
 Score the card on the gray line and fold in half. Open it up and with an exacto knife, cut a slot at the top of the paper guide. Cut out the Happy Valentine's Day message and slip it into the slot. Tape it on the inside of the card. (for those of you too young to remember, some typewriter ribbons came in black and red. A bad typewriter or perhaps a poor typist would find this strange lettering of half black, half red when they tried to type. Unfortunately this seemed to occur frequently whenever I typed.)
For variety I've included a Happy Anniversary message as well, for that occasion.

The perfect opposite of the ecard in more ways than one. (two actually)
