This article will tell you how to make a printable baby card in the first part. And sometimes, figuring out what to write in a baby card is not as easy as imagined. Baby card is also the venue to show your creativity. So we also provide some baby card message ideas at the second part.

Step 1: Select a favorite baby card template

You are suggested to make a baby card from built-in template: both single-sheet and half-fold card templates are included. Double click the thumbnail with a down arrow to download baby card template before using it. An internet connection is thus required.

Step 2: Add baby card message and photo if necessary

In the Add Photo tab, you could import a baby photo for a baby photo card, or just a cartoon baby boy or baby girl if you don't have the photo to the baby you want to show your welcome. Next, add baby card message in the Decorate Collage tab. See baby card message samples to get inspiration.

Step 3: Print baby card to send out

Now the baby card is ready to be printed. Go to Print Collage tab to bring about your baby card design. The default settings usually work. As to my own experience, the landscape orientation is good for half-fold baby card, while portrait orientation for single-sheet baby card. But first and foremost, you need a working printer to print your baby card. Otherwise, the print option could not be available.

Printable Baby Card Tips: It's ridiculous to print a baby card in A4 paper and you need additional work to get perfect baby card. So get A5 (5.83" x 8.27" ) or A6 (4.13" x 5.83" ) paper prepared and select the top right layout. This way, cutting is generally not required. For a letter paper, you are recommended to select the bottom right layout and input 27.94 x 21.59(millimeter, width x height) for landscape baby card, or 21.59 x 27.94 for portrait baby card. To set paper size, click Advanced and select Properties in the open dialog.
