iPhoto provides only a few ways you can change the design of your card, making it extremely easy to come up with a sleek greeting card or postcard.
To design a card:
Select the front of your card by clicking it.
From the Design pop-up menu, choose a design (Figure 7.4). Repeat as necessary until you've found the design you like.

Select the back/inside of your card by clicking it in the display pane.
From the Design pop-up menu, choose a design. Repeat as necessary until you've found the design you like.
If you don't like any of the designs, click the Themes button and choose a new theme from the card design dialog.
From the Background pop-up menu, choose a background color (Figure 7.5).

Enter text in the provided text boxes and, if you don't like the default text formats, reformat it as desired.
In general, I recommend sticking with the fonts that Apple's designers chose for each design. Otherwise, you risk picking a font that won't print well or may not look as you expect on the finished card.
You can enter text only in the provided text boxes. Different themes may offer additional places to enter text, but in general, text options are limited with cards.
With postcards, the back of the card can accept either a design that provides room for general text or a design that provides space for an address and a stamp.
