INSIDE MESSAGE ON GREETING CARD
Your card will fold to make an inside and outside once folded, but is seen in a page layout app differently.
Take a sheet of paper and fold it in half to represent the card you will be making.
Now open it up and lay it down on a table, with the inside of the card face down.
The outside back of the card should now be on your left, and the front of the card is on the right. Use a pencil or pen to mark it as such, if you need to.
Now when you do your card layout, the cover art and text should be on the right side of the page you create in the application.
If you flip the card over, so that the inside is now facing you, you are looking at the inside of the card.
Usually, the text and signature areas would be on the right side of this page, as well.
Now, use that same guidance when you work on 'page 2' of your document. Add the text to the right side of your page, so it will be on the right inside panel after you print and fold the card.
The final step is to print it out so that the inside and outside are in the correct orientation to each other.
Be sure to feed the paper such that the top of the card is facing the same side of the paper tray when you prnt both sides. (I sometimes make a light mark in pencil which can be erasd, to be sure it goes in the right direction, since this step is easily messed up.)
