Share holiday moments!Here’s a fun way to send personalized Christmas ecards with your own photos and message. Smilebox is a service that helps you make customized animated cards and slideshows. They provide cute backgrounds and animation, and you add your own photos, text and choice of music.

Smilebox offers hundreds of designs for all occasions, including Christmas, and all the designs are free. Ads on each creation allow them to offer the service for free, but you can also sign up for the 14-day free trial to get access to premium features such as ad-free cards.  You’ll also get the ability to print your creations or burn them to disc.

In addition to creating animated Christmas cards, you can also make your own electronic holiday party invitations, recipe cards, family slideshows and more. There are also plenty of fun templates for other holidays, as well as for everyday greetings.
