Select appealing and fun photos to insert into your card. Choose images that are in high-resolution and avoid using stock images. You can crop or add a filter to your picture in your MS Publisher. For instance, if you would make a birthday party card, you can insert a photo of the celebrant, a happy birthday image, or other photos relevant for birthdays.
5. Include Texts
Decide on the main text of your card. If you want it personal, you can choose handwritten fonts from MS Publisher. It will give an intimate touch if you write the recipient's name and the sender in a handwritten form.
