Most card designing software comes with templates of cards that you can use, or you can start with a blank template and use your own idea. After setting up the card, you can choose images to add. These programs have clip art collections you can choose from, or you may opt to use your own images. Once you decide on an image, you can modify the color and size. You can also choose a font and modify font's size and color. After adding all of the card's elements, check it for consistency, and make any necessary changes.
