The inclusion of honeycomb tissue into valentine cards was introduced by German printers in the early 1900's. This honeycomb valentine is rare in that the color of the honeycomb tissue is not the typical red. The blue honeycomb sets off the three-dimensional image of the crane lifting a basket of blue forget-me-nots. A young boy, wearing a sailor outfit, is holding a bouquet of purple violets; the girl in front of him, wearing a pink and white dress, is holding a large group of violets, which is decorated by a heart. Text on the card tucked into the left side of the honeycomb reads: To my Valentine./Roses sweet I often see,/But you're the sweetest rose for me.
