The image moves forward to reveal text, entitled, 'Valentine" that reads: When first my eyes did view and mark/they beauty fair to behold,/And when my ears 'gan first to hark/The pleasant words that thou me told,/I would as then I had been free/From ears to hear and eyes to see. The back of the card is created with ornately decorated blue paper with butterflies and birds flying amongst the blooms of a flowering tree. An image rests on top of the paper depicting Cupid sitting on a smaller throne playing the flute with yellow and pink roses at his feet. This image moves forward to reveal text entitled, "Love" that reads: The love that will soonest decay,/The love that is surest to die,/The love that will soon fly away,/Is the love/That is told by a sign./the love that is surest to last,/The love that a woman's heart needs,/Is the love/That is spoken in deeds. The entire card is bordered with purple paper ruffles; the card is tied in the center with a blue ribbon.
