Funeral and Memorial Prayer Card Video
This video gives information about how to create a memorial prayer card
Prayer cards are often admired at a funeral service and then taken home in remembrance of a loved one.
The prayer card template creates eight cards per sheet, with room for a picture and personal information on the front, and a scripture or tribute on back.
You’ll see 1-inch margins on the front and the back which is necessary for printing.
To change the title, click in the text box and type your desired text.
To add a picture—click on, highlight and delete the text in the photo box.
Select the box by clicking its border.
Then, right click—or command-click on a mac—choose “format auto shape,” then “colors and lines.”
Go to “fill effects,” and find the picture tab.
Click “picture” and choose the “select picture” option.
Choose your desired picture from your computer.
Hit “insert,” then “okay” and “okay” again.
To place the same photo on other prayer cards, either follow these same steps, or—
Select the already-placed picture by clicking on its border—then hit control-c—or command-c on a mac—to copy it.
Select and “delete” the photo box placeholder on the next prayer card—
Hit control-v, or command-v on mac, to paste a copy of your picture. Then drag that picture to where you want it on the next card.
To replace the prayer on the back, simply highlight the text, and replace it with your chosen words.
You will print your prayer cards front and back.
If you will be printing your cards on perforated paper, make sure you place your paper in the printer so the tab is at the bottom of the paper tray—the right blank margin will then become that tab.
If you are using a single-sided printer, make sure you put your paper back into the printer blank side down, still leading with the margin edge.
If you are using plain paper, it’s easy to cut your prayer cards apart, simply staying in the middle of the white space.
Once your cards are cut, laminating can turn them into an even more durable keepsake. Remember, laminate “after” cutting.
