I have Microsoft Word already and would prefer not to buy expensive extra software. A It is more difficult to create a decorative document such as an invitation using Microsoft Word (or other basic word processing software) than with software designed especially for that purpose. However, if you are prepared to experiment in Word you will find Word Art useful. In the ‘Insert’ menu, choose ‘Picture’. You can then insert pictures and generally play around choosing different paper sizes, text boxes and even columns. Bear in mind that inserting a box, whether it is to contain a picture, Word Art or anything else, you will need to format it. To format your box, place the cursor over the boundary of the box until a four-way arrow appears and then right-click. Select ‘Format Picture’ from the menu. Choose a format to suit. To get the best results, you need to purchase software designed for creating invitations and cards, such as Microsoft Publisher or Hallmark Card Studio, but there are also several low-cost or free programs that can be downloaded. Try Googling ‘greeting card software’, read some reviews and try out a few programs – you’ll find a range of packages, at very reasonable prices, which will make creating invitations a lot easier as well as have lots of other uses.
