One of the things that you will do for your birthday party is to give out a birthday card. In your mind, you might already have an idea about what kind of card you should get from your friend or whoever it is that you are planning to gift this to. However, did you know that there are actually lots of other things that you should consider when you are making up the layout of the card? Did you know that you can actually play with the different elements that you will use so that you will come up with a birthday card template for MS Word that is unique and interesting? Here are some tips that you can use for your card design:
o Include the right colors _ When you are creating the card template for MS Word, you can include the colors that you want to use. There are lots of color schemes that you can choose from. Choose the right color schemes so that your card will be more attractive. For example, if you are going to use blue as one of the main colors, then make sure that the rest of the text in the card is all in shades of blue. This way, you will be able to make your card more creative and interesting. If you are not sure about what shades of blue to use, you can always use the standard shade of blue and just customize it with other colors based on your preferences.
O Theme _ Try to come up with a theme that will make your card very creative and interesting to look at. You can base your theme on the character that you are going to use for the card or, you can base it on the theme that you used for the entire party. Either way, you will definitely find something that you can use for your card.
O Typeface _ Make sure that you choose a typeface that is suited to the overall design of your birthday card. This includes the font type, and its size as well as the colors that will be used in the card. There are different types of fonts that you can use such as Times New Roman, Arial, Palatino, and Courier New. You can also include special effects like shadows and other effects that will help make your card look more appealing.
O Quote _ If you are not very much into poems when it comes to your cards, then you can choose to add quotes that are related to the person whom you are sending the card to. There are many card templates that allow you to place the quote on the front side as well as the backside. You can use these quotes to make your card more personalized and cute. Just be sure that you do not overdo it. Try to be as genuine as possible. A little bit of humor goes a long way.
O Relevance _ Finally, make sure that you have included things that are pertinent to the person whom you are sending the birthday card for. For example, if the person is a teacher, you may want to place his picture in the card. You may also want to include something that is relevant to the occasion like a notice about the meeting or a notice about the seminar that you will host in a couple of days. If the person is a doctor, his name can also be included in the card so that he will know that the greeting card is from him.
O Signature _ Since this is not an ordinary birthday card, you may want to include the personal signature of the sender. To be safe, try not to put your real name on the card. It is best to use your middle name or any name that is easy to remember. Make sure that it is typed and that all the fonts are in their normal position. It is advisable not to use lots of magic signs, exclamation marks or dollar signs since they will only make your card look like a kindergarten drawing.
Finally, you may want to create a cover photo of the card just like the one that is found in the greeting card section of the MS Word application. Choose a place on the card where you want to add your text. Type the desired text in the text box and then select "Fit Text" or "Fit Into Window". Then, type in your desired font, size and color as you normally do with your other menus in the MS Word application. Finally, click on "Save" to save your birthday card template.
