In this video, you will resize the drawing page and add a title to your postcard.

To begin, change the page size of your drawing to the size of a postcard.

That’s usually 6 inches by 4 inches.

You could also do 4 inches by 6 inches, if that’s a better fit for the design of your postcard.

This example creates a drawing that is 6 inches wide and 4 inches tall.

Then, choose a location to create a postcard for.

The location should be a place you know something about without having to do research, like your hometown, a place you’ve visited, a place where a relative lives, or a place you are learning about in class.

Next, use Word Art to add the location to the postcard in big letters so it’s clear to see.

Using Word Art can help you create an eye-catching title that grabs the audience’s attention.

Format the title with a font style you like, Add color, A border, And a drop shadow that helps the title stand out.

A drop shadow adds depth to the letters so they appear to pop out of the picture.

Now, it’s your turn: Change the page size, Add a location title with Word Art, And format the title with color, a border, and a shadow.
