When your child plays baseball, having cards made is one way to commemorate her participation in the sport. No need to hire a photographer or pay a printer; use your camera and Microsoft Word to create these cards.

1

Take some action shots of your child. Pick out your favorite action photo.

2

Take a photo of your child holding a bat. Or use the photo the league takes for you.

3

Scan both photos and save them digitally to your computer.

4

Find a template online to use at the HP Creative Studio website.

5

Click inside the first cell and select "Insert." Repeat this into the second cell with the other photo.

6

Size the cells to the standard baseball card size, 2 1/2 by 3 1/2.

7

Apply text and graphics over the photos. Double-click your graphic and use the "tight layout" option.

8

Print out your baseball cards and give them to family and friends.
