Do you want a border around your card for a trimming guide?
Yes     No

STEP #8: Adding Music, Animation or a Gift.
After cutting out your card and folding it, you can add music and animation by singing and jumping up and down when you deliver your card.

You can use this envelope pattern to make an envelope from a sheet of paper. Try using colored paper or one of your coloring sheets. They make great envelopes.

If you mail your card be sure to use an envelope that is at least 3 1/2 X 5 inches. That's postal minimum size. You can add a Gift of Time Certificate, a Certificate of Recognition, a gift Bookmarker or some Ivy Bucks.

STEP #9: Choosing the Card Size
The card is designed to fill one 8 1/2" X 11" sheet of paper with normal margins.

For best results widen the margins and turn off the printing of header and footers [TIP]. This will give you a cleaner card and you can make a larger card. If you are having problems with the card printing on two pages, you can make a smaller card so it will print on one page.
What size card would you like?
Largest Larger Normal Smaller Smallest

STEP #10: Preview & Print
You are now ready to preview your card! To do so, just click on the Preview Card button below. The front and back of your card will be upside down when you view it on the monitor, but will be right side up after you trim and fold it. If you have trouble with this step, ask a kid for help.

You use your browsers "Print" button to print the card after it is displayed on your screen. Use your "Back" button to return to this page if you want to make changes before printing or to make more cards.
