Greeting Card Campaign: 12-05 Walt Disney's Birthday

Click here to download free card.
December 5, 1901 was the birthday of Walter Elias "Walt" Disney - or Uncle Walt as I like to think of him. Walt was born in Hermosa, Illinois. He had three brothers and a sister. Walt built upon his early interest in drawing and did pioneering work in the field of animation. With his brother Roy, Disney co-founded Walt Disney Productions and the rest is history. During his lifetime, he won 22 Academy Awards, founded Disneyland and began work on Walt Disney World. The Disney entertainment empire is still a growing and powerful company making films, building amusement parks and continuing to pioneer in the fields of motion picture and television production, the travel and vacation industry and nearly every field of entertainment. Most of us grew up with Walt's gift for engaging a child's imagination and sense of wonder. He never quite lost that sense of childlike wonder. Not a bad example for the rest of us.

Wish your sweetie a "Happy Walt Disney's Birthday", crank up your favorite Disney movie on the TV or go out and see one. Either way there should be popcorn involved (and a free, printable, downloadable Walt Disney's Birthday Card - not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company, of course).

Just click on the caption below the old public domain picture of Uncle Walt and his old pal Mickey.  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.

You can also make your own free Disney cards too at this website.
