The lucky red cover shows a fierce dragon in silhouette, open card to reveal a coiled 3-D Chinese Water Dragon in a tumultuous sea.
Chinese dragons symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods. The Chinese Water Dragon is a symbol of passion, power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it.
He oversees the dragons of the seas, springs, lakes, ponds, and rivers. Although he is normally calm, when angered he is quite powerful. He is said to have a long serpent body with fins and scales.
Water dragons teach us the importance of water, how to heal both body and land, diving deeply into our dreams and emotions. They can also show us past and present lives and how to tap into that knowledge.
This is a thoughtful pop-up card.
Happy Year of the Dragon.
Don’t be a Drag-on.
Happy Birthday, Dragon.
You are fierce!
You’re on a roll, you’re full of steam!
If the sky could dream, it would dream of dragons.
Crouching tigers, hidden dragons.
Dungeons and Dragons.
We are our own dragons.
Some days the Dragon wins.
My Dragon can take your Unicorn.
Do not meddle Dragons.
I brake for Dragons.
My other ride is a dragon.
Come on baby, light my fire.
If you can’t take the heat don’t tickle the Dragon.
Puff, the Magic Dragon, lived by the sea,
and frolicked in the Autumn Mist in a land called Honah Lee.
Little Jacky Paper loved that rascal Puff,
and gave him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff.

I’m not so much a dragon slayer, more a dragon annoyer. ~Craig Ferguson
I’m honored to be called a dragon lady. The dragon is a very powerful, mythical animal. ~Yoko Ono
She was born in the Year of the Dragon. Her fiery passion is what makes her irresistible. And when February comes around, it’s not Valentine’s Day that she looks forward to. No, instead she drags you to the New Year celebrations in Chinatown. You buy her a steamed bun and as she hides her face in your chest and squeals with joy when the fireworks begin, you know you’re going to marry her.
