You can do it with Word or Publisher. But it's not as simple and you'd
think. You need to line up where your text is so that it falls on or at
least near the lines. (I've done it and it's a bugger.) If you do try it,
make some photo copies of your cards because it's a trial and error thing.
You'll end up with several rejects before you get the text boxes where you
want them.

If you have Publisher, setup a custom page size in your printer driver the
dimensions of your card. Page setup should reflect this printer setup
Scan the card, place the scan on the Master Page. Create text boxes on the
publication page for filling the spaces.
Do a couple of trials. If it works okay and you have a lot of names, use mail
merge. When you are ready to print, View, check Ignore Master Page.
