To make memorial cards for keepsakes, use a card stock template that is either single or double-sided, depending on your desired design. Use scratch paper to write out some ideas about what you want the card to say, remembering that the size of the card affects how much is added. Open the card stock, and follow the directions provided for formatting the design using a word processing program or an online template provided by the manufacturer's website.Continue Reading
When done correctly, the design created is duplicated by the software or website so that it prints out within the margins of the card stock. Print a test page on blank printer paper before printing out the cards to make any necessary adjustments. Hold the test page up to a piece of the card stock to check the margins and alignment. If there is any discrepancy, edit the original design, and print a test page as many times as necessary to achieve the desired result.
Some ideas for memorial cards include prayer cards with the person's favorite Bible verse or prayer, a memorial poem, quotes or the person's obituary. Edit and scale a small picture of the person, if desired. Include any personal information about the person that you want others to remember.Learn more about Holidays & Celebrations
