Renee Warren, of Emsworth, remembers her parents first sending the "Scotch Christmas card" to her cousin, Ethal, in Tooting, London, in 1947.
When her mother died, she continued the tradition, and still sends the card to Ethal, who now lives in Canada.
Mrs Warren said the card, which has had to be reinforced with sellotape, "chartered the family's history".
