Greeting Card Campaign: 11/4 King Tut Day

Click here to download King Tut Day card
King Tut Day - the date that Pharoah Tutankhamen's Tomb was discovered in 1922. Thanks to Steve Martin, King Tut even has a theme song.  King Tut as he is commonly called became pharoah of Egypt at the tender age of 9 in 1333 BC. He was dead by age 19 by either murder or accident. Given that he was a teenager at the time of his demise with ultimate power in Egypt, it was probably murder.  The boy king's tomb was discovered on November 4, 1922. The find was significant because it was discovered nearly intact in Egypt's Valley of Kings.

Now send a card to your queen to let her know it's her day too with this King Tut Day CardJust click on the caption below the picture of the boy king. 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.
