Some years ago one of my cards found its way to a lady in Northern Ireland and since that time she has contacted me to make personalised cards for many occasions for many of her family and friends.
This week was one such occasion... it started as a request for four cards, which turned into an additional two before they were posted off to her this morning. This is for one of the requests. 
The way that I get the text onto the correct part of the card is all very technical... I have my Word program set to 105% zoom which makes it just about the same size as a sheet of A4, so using text boxes I put the words into the correct place by holding the front panel of the card with the aperture cut into it, over my screen and then move the text boxes around until the words fit behind the aperture! I'm sure there's a proper way of doing it, but it works for me.
