How to make a Custom Holiday Card

How To Make A Holiday Greeting Card  

Sending holiday cards has been a tradition this time of year since the 1800s, but they've never been so fun and easy to create! Your online photo account allows you to create your own custom holiday greeting cards. You can use multiple images, or just one, and can arrange the size and layout of the photos however you'd like. You can also add your own custom text and other graphics to the card, then order it, right from your computer! Read on for the simple instructions.
Card Tab

1. Log in to your account and upload the photos you want to use. Click the yellow "Cards and Calendars" tab, and click "Cards."
2. Browse the cards. You can sort by size, style, and/or category. Click the one you like best to view a larger preview and click "Create Card."

Lastly, save your work periodically using the "Save" button. That allows you to start a card, save it, then come back and finish it later.

Before you create your card, get a feel for what's available. Browse what sizes are available. 4x8 is the most common size for flat cards. Other sizes might include 4x6, 5x7, 5x5 and 6x8. Also, you can browse by category, including Holiday, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year, Religious, Invitations, and other holiday-themed categories. 
All of these choices makes it easier to create the exact card you want, and gives you more control over your 2011 holiday cards!
