If you're looking for an alternative to snail mailing a traditional holiday card this year, why not send this pre-made, animated, musically-enhanced e-card instead?
Sandra Johnson, a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for PowerPoint, created the card using PowerPoint 2010. And she's made it easy for you to personalize it with your own message. Simply download the card from our templates site.
If someone on your recipient list doesn't have PowerPoint 2010, have them install the free PowerPoint Viewer to view your card.
You can learn more about Sandra and her work at http://www.presentationwiz.biz.
Check out the Office Holiday Mailings page for more templates, images, information about how to use mail merge to make your group mailings easy, and more. And Ron Owens has a great post about how to make your own holiday cards, too.
Let the holiday cheer begin.

I really like this how do it work?
I like the motif and the animation - but I'd like to thank my friends and business partners for a wonderful year 2010. The card still says 2009 - and the text is not editable ... :-(
Ute and Daijah!
Please see the Notes page - Sandy has added instructions on how to edit the text. If you can't see it, I've pasted the instructions, as per Sandy below:
To replace the sentiment here follow these instructions:
1.) Type your sentiment in the font of your choice. I’ve used “Frosty” here, but that won’t work on all computers (although I’ve saved it as a picture – so we’re OK with this exact sentiment), so choose something safe, like arial or times roman (not as cute, I know).
2.) Go to Slide Show > Animations > Custom Animation (PPT 2003) or Animations > Custom Animation.
3.) Select the existing sentiment. In the animation task pane, You’ll see that it’s called “Picture 2” and that it’s animated to Fade In, Very Fast, With Previous. With the new sentiment you created, animate it the same way – Fade In, Very Fast, With Previous.
4.) In the animation task pane select this new animation and drag it so it’s located just under the Picture 2 animation.
5.) On the slide, highlight and delete the old sentiment and then move yours’ into its place.
6.) Delete Sandy and type your name
If you still need help, let me know. Thanks and have fun!
Joy, thanks for clarifying the instructions found in the speakers notes.
Hi Joy and Sandy,
yes, the editing works - and with PowerPoint 2010 I can even copy the animation ;-) Thanks!
Thanks so much for sharing your E-card, Sandy. I knew people would get a lot of fun from this!
Are there more holiday e-card templates? I'd like to send one to members of a committee but would like to be Holiday neutral (Happy Holidays, not Merry Christmas) the music on this card is We Wish You a Merry Christmas which I like but i do want to be PC when sending it out to those i work with. Any tips?
Hi Stacy - I totally understand about wanting to be holiday neutral! Please check the holiday cards on our templates site located here: office.microsoft.com/.../results.aspx
you should be able to find a holiday neutral greeting there! Thanks and have fun with it! --Joym
Stacy - I'm noticing that the link I sent you is limited. Here is a better one to look through: office.microsoft.com/.../results.aspx
