Make a Card Template for a Traditional Style Of Greeting Card

This is the easiest format of invitation template to make a card with. This style is nothing other than an 8 1/2" by 11" sheet of paper folded in half. Once you have your invitation template, made using either desktop publishing or manual layout , all you need to do is print these pages back to back. You can print them off your computer printer at home, or if you have a large quantity to print, you can bring them to a copy center. Most of these shops will gladly allow you to use your own paper to copy onto. They also generally offer a large assortment of papers to choose from in different colors and weights.

Front of Card

Want to make this invitation as quick an easy as possible? Keep it simple! No need for any fancy graphics or embellishments! Choose a great pattern for your invitation paper, and stick with beautiful fonts for your words. Instead of a graphic pick a great scrolling font and use a good phrase printed in the same beautiful font for the front of the card. All that will need to be done is print and fold. Pop it into an envelope and your done!

If you decide to choose this style and use a card stock as your paper choice, let me remind you that the invitations on card stock may need to be scored in order to fold them. Scoring is a clean crease made on the fold of the invitation using a specific scoring tool or machine. It will make the card stock fold cleanly, otherwise it could come out looking wrinkly and messy. Many sliding personal paper cutters come with a scoring attachment tool.

If you would like to be a little more elaborate with this style of invitation then let your imagination run wild! This style gives you the most room to play around with! Instead of printing a graphic on the front (which I think looks a little cheesy anyway), glue on some die cuts! Attach some ribbon, or use a fancy paper punch on the edges! Make a card that stands out!
