Note Card Template
First, let's customize the front of the card. Click in the text box in the center of the card and highlight Place Text Here. Then choose your favorite font from the Text menu on the left and type your message. We used the pretty "Bella Donna" font for this card, but there are many options you can choose from. We also reduced the font size using the tools on the left side of the screen.
