The initial version of the homeschool ID card contained all the most necessary parts: photo, student name, school name, address, and contact phone number.

The first thing Sam did was choose a business card template from the huge selection in The Print Shop Deluxe. It was the closest format to what she needed. After coming up with a basic layout, she and her sisters had a little photo shoot to create mug shots for their cards. Those were imported into The Print Shop and added to their cards.

As you can see here, all the text is centered, uses decorative script fonts, and there are text effects on the school name (color and outline). The girls chose the clip art (part of the collection that comes with the software) because their last name is Bear.
