Make Your Own Printable Birthday Card in Ten
If youre interested in making your own, unique printable
birthday card, then youre only a few clicks away. All you
need is Microsoft Powerpoint and some basic computer knowledge.
Here is a step by step guide on how to make your own printable
birthday card. Of course, you can use these steps to make many
other cards for other special events like Christmas, Hanukah,
Valentines Day, etc
1.)When you open Power Point, make sure that you set the paper
size. Letter is the easiest paper to find and use. So remember
to set the paper size to letter. If you use another paper, make
sure you specify the type. This will be the paper on which you
will be printing your printable birthday card later.
2. Next, go to File > Page Setup. This will bring up the page
setup dialog box. Here you would need to choose the paper size
3.)Don't forget the Slides Orientation.You can ignore orientation
for the Notes, handouts & outline. We are not designing the
printable birthday cards on them. Just concerntrate on the slide.
4.)When you are ready, just click OK. Then you will need to show
the guide to estimate the pages on the printable birthday card
that you are about to design. The guide is the non-printable dotted
lines on the page layout. To get the guide out, you need to click
on View > Grid and Guide.
5.)With the guides on, you can see two dotted lines on the slide
in design mode. One line is the horizontal line and the second
line is the vertical line. These lines split the slide evenly
top-bottom and left-right.
6.)The top left corner will be the front page. But you will have
to rotate the image or artwork or texts for that page later. It
needs to be rotated 180 degrees.
7.)The top right corner is the back. Here you can put some logo
which determines your design for the printable birthday cards.
You can put anything there. Again, it would have to be rotated
180 degrees as well.
8.)The bottom right corner is the first inside page. This page
normally is empty like most birthday cards, but you put anything
you want there like some extra message or anything.
9.) Lastly, the bottom right corner. This is where you put your
wordings for your printable birthday. I guess, when that is done,
it is done. You have your printable birthday card ready.
10.) To convert it into PDF, you would need a PDF converter.
Many are available on the Internet.
If you follow these ten easy steps you will be able to create
your own printable birthday card whenever you like.
