Greeting Card Campaign: 12-01 National Pie Day

Click here to download National Pie Day card.
December 1 is National Pie Day. I know we've been doing pies and dessert day a lot lately, but given the season and the fact that I like pie, we're going with National Pie Day.  Pie is, at least in my opinion, the perfect food.  It has that lovely flaky, buttery crust filled with fruit, vegetables, meat, or even gravies. Long ago pie type shells were used to carry food on a long journey - the pie served as a carrying case more or less. The first pie recipe recorded was a Sumerian chicken pot pie. The Egyptians, Romans and other ancient civilizations had their own versions.

Pie can be made with a top crust only, top and bottom or bottom only. I even saw a crustless one once. Cake does not hold a candle to a pie.  Celebrate the day by eating yourself some pie and by telling your sweetie pie how much you love her too with this free downloadable, printable National Pie Day CardJust click on the caption below the picture of the pie.  The link will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs.  Download the file. Don't try to print the file from within Google Docs. I use a lot of fonts and Google Docs doesn't seem to like them very much.  Instead, 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 prefer.  Print the card from there and it should be fine.

This is a side fold card, so when you print it, be sure to select "landscape" and if you have two-sided printing, choose "flip on the short side" so that the inside of the card is the same way up as the outside.
