I made similiar birthday cards because the girls are twins - just switched the colors around. Was anxious to try printing the monograms on the computer. Thanks for all the directions in the forum. My daughter pointed out (after the fact) that if you put a letter in a text box, you can move them around and get more on a sheet.

Great cards. You have a clever daughter! I like to use the Word Art box and that lets me drag it over so it flips backwards so it prints on the back of the cardstock in reverse - I have not had luck doing that with a text box.

I had trouble using the Word Art. For the life of me, I could only get the letter to rotate, but not to "mirror." Someone on the forum mentioned doing the "mirroring" this way: When you go to "Print", then click "Preferences", then click "Basics" tab, then under "Orientation" click the box that says "Mirror." It will then print in mirror. It is great. Just be careful to unset it - I thought it would do it automatically and had several text pages print backwards! Elizabeth
