Greeting Card Campaign: 11-18 Mickey Mouse Day

Click here to download your card.
November 18 celebrates the birthday in 19289 of Mickey Mouse. Mickey was born when his Father, Walter Elias Disney lost the copyright to his original character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Walt had to come up with a new character, so he picked a mouse and named him Mickey.  Mickey evolved over time from his first appearance in "Steamboat Willie", the first cartoon ever to be synchronized for sound. Mickey turned out to be a much better character than Oswald who disappeared into obscurity. Celebrate the Disney icon's birthday by telling your Minnie that you and she were meant for each other with this simple card which hopefully doesn't violate anyone's copyright enough to get me in trouble.

Just click on the caption below the three black circles above which do not intentionally bear a resemblance to any cartoon mouse living or dead. The link will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs. Remember, instead of printing from Google Docs, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Download" and copy the file to your own computer.  Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you use and print the card from there. For some reason Google Docs doesn't handle fonts well, even though they are supposed to be embedded in the PDF document itself.

This is a top fold card, so when it prints, be sure to tell your printer it's in "portrait" format so you get the whole file. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. This also flips the inside upside down from the outside when you print in portrait mode, so that, when you fold it over, the inside comes out right side up.  If you're confused, I encourage you to give it a try with a practice sheet.
