The inclusion of honeycomb tissue into valentine cards was introduced by German printers in the early 1900's. This honeycomb valentine incorporates the red tissue, which was used most often in these cards. The honeycomb sets off the three-dimensional image of blue and white windmill, bedecked with blue flowers. A ladder stands next to the windmill, on which sits a young girl dressed in blue wearing a yellow hat; a young boy, dressed in brown and white, is standing on the ladder, holding his green hat off to one side with one hand and a bouquet of roses in the other. Text tucked into the honeycomb reads: To my Valentine./Roses sweet I often see,/But you're the sweetest Rose for me.
