The Christmas season is upon us, and with it comes the opportunity to share with friends how much they mean to you. Presents are nice, but can be very expensive if you try to keep things fair and give one to ALL of your many friends. There is an easier way to show you care, though. Creating personalized Christmas cards is simple with the use of the existing dolls and doll makers here at the Doll Palace.
Choose or Make a Doll
The first step to creating personalized Christmas cards is choosing the doll that is most appropriate for you, or the one you just like the most.
The problem with most of the existing Christmas cards is that they are too cheesy or donít really have any meaning to you. How can you share your holiday spirit with friends if you canít get into a festive mood over your own cards?
Find a cute Christmas doll, or create your own. Dress her up to resemble you, or let her be the symbol of the season. Once you have selected the doll, simply save her to your computer and begin work on the card itself.
Create the Cards
Creating personalized Christmas cards can be done quickly, or you can take your time and really create something special. There are lots of programs especially designed to create greeting cards, or you can even use a word processor, like Word, to make a basic card.
Use your doll image on your card by pasting or importing, and then type up all of the meaningful things youíve wanted to say all year. Christmas is the best time to really let your friends know how special they are to you. You can create a single card to use for all of your friends, or you can repeat the process with a new doll for each of your friends.
Make it Special
By simply taking the time to make cards rather than buy some from the store, you are already showing your friends and family how much you care. To make it even more special, consider choosing a doll that resembles each friend. Or you can dress each Christmas doll in your friendís unique style.
The message within the card will be the most important aspect, obviously. Messages can be as simple as, ďMerry Christmas!Ē to longer letters. Most girls appreciate longer letters as they are much more meaningful, but the adorable doll on the front (or inside) may be enough to please if you are not exactly a writer, or donít like getting into the gushy stuff.
A final way to make your personalized Christmas cards even more special is by including something unique from you. A cheerful candy cane will do nicely, or perhaps you are a culinary genius. Whip up a batch of cookies or fudge to offer each of your friends, and they will have a merry Christmas indeed.
