Making a Business Card

Several years ago I made a business card using Corel Magic 4. Somewhere
along the line it died. I tried making one with Word and some Avery add-on.
I must be missing something, because I can't get the hang of adjusting it to
look like the one I made with Magic. Any tips? Roughly, it looks like:

Image Words
.... about my
Image interests

Although this can be done in Word, if you have Publisher, you'll find that
much better suited to your purposes. In Word, you go to Envelopes and
Labels, choose the Avery stock number from Label Options, and then click New
Document to get a full sheet of cards. They're set up as a table, so make
sure you have table gridlines displayed (Table | Show Gridlines) so you can
see the card boundaries. Wrapping text around an image in a table cell is
not easy. You may need to split each cell into two rows, then split the top
half of the cell into two columns to approximate the layout you want.

Did Publisher come with Office 2003? Ah, yes, it did. Maybe. I see it listed
in the menu under Office 2003, but I'm getting errors. I couldn't capture
some the messages. At some point it needed a dll file, or found one missing.
At another point it asked me for a disk, but I canceled. When I started
again, it asked if I want to do set up in safe mode. I'm getting in safe
mode, "ptxt8.dll is not a valid Windows image." Pressing on, I'm giving in
my CD. I installed, and it looks OK. To be sure I restarted normally and is
giving me a security warning about Adobe macros. Should I trust them? OK, I
will. So now I need to figure out where I can do bus cards. I'll worry about
it tomorrow.
