Creating a Template-based Greeting Card in Publisher 2010


After installing Microsoft Publisher 2010 I decided to start getting familiar with it by jumping in and creating a simple greeting card using one of the installed templates. I made a few changes, explored the template customization options, the Text Tool Box, and the Backstage View. I discovered a few quirks along the way but creating a basic card is not difficult at all. Take a quick tour and follow along as I made a birthday card in Publisher 2010.
