    Hi,
    I used to have a bit of free software (cardid?) that you could make a birthday card from an A4 sheet which you folded into a greeting card. (tightwad I know) Could use your own pics etc, easy to use and came with stacks of templates. When moved to W7 lost the thing and cannot find it in my backups.
    There are lots of free stuff around but it's mainly e-cards or one sided sheets.
    Anyone help?

    Do you have Microsoft Publisher? It's easy to make cards in there.

    If you have the program and need some help let me know. I have a worksheet that I use with my beginners (IT students) and I could email you a copy.

    Thanks fr the offer but I'm OpenOffice now, MSO getting too expensive.
    I've put together a template in OO that does the job. What I wanted was s/w that allowed you to use an A4 sheet that when folded (twice) made a greeting card, you just add your own text and pictures.

    Thanks Dylan,
    I'm in Spain at the moment, by the time I get back I will probably have it sorted, thanks anyway.
