Default Making card-inserts with sentiments

Using Ms Word 2010, Student Version, I'm trying to print a 3-line sentiment on text-weight paper for the inside of Christmas Cards. With word 2007, it was simple, but using the same technique doesn't work with Word 2010.

Do you know how to do it?

Keeping my fingers crossed,
Bahb

I create a table, add text in cell, print a test sheet. Adjust as needed, copy into other cells, remove borders and print. I hope that helps.

Sounds simple, and probably is for someone who didn't spend so many years using the Office versions that had some acquaintance with being intuitive. I created the table, added the text, printed the test. "Adjusting" is another thing. I need the whole thing down much lower on the page and have no idea how to remove the borders. Everything I think might work just ends up adding to or changing what I had already made perfect except for the placement on the page and removing the borders.

Any ideas appreciated,
Bahb

Let me try: (I know this might not be exactly what you want but it will give you an idea to try and then adapt to your needs.)

Make a table, two rows, two columns. Type your text into one of the cells, right click & select cell alignment, I chose the middle one to center. Test print, adjust by dragging the table borders (just like older versions) to give more room. Copy & paste text into other cells. To remove borders: right click, chose borders & shading, chose none.

Note: This is not the only way to do this, just my way.
