Children’s Christmas Cards and Christmas Crafts can be Combined Together

Also, these colorful cartoon cards attract the attention of the kids more than ones depicting wreaths or trees.
Another innovative way to make your child happy with his/her Christmas card is to superimpose your child’s photo onto Mickey’s body and make it stand alongside any other Disney character. Kids can also send these cards to their own friends.

This can be converted into beautiful picture Christmas cards to be sent to family and friends around the country and the world.
