PowerPoint: 2014 Animated Holiday Greeting Card

In Greeting Card, PowerPoint example, Tutorial on November 26, 2014 at 2:41 pm
Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Here is my holiday gift to you. This year’s Animated Holiday Greeting card features a calming, retro design with a traditional seasonal music track. Feel free to customize the signature and pass it on to your family, friends and business colleagues.

This year’s card comes in 2 versions, so you can choose between a Christmas or Holiday greeting. To preview each card in a video format and hear the music track, click on either image below.

To download the PowerPoint file for “Merry Christmas”, click here. To download the PowerPoint file for “Happy Holiday’s” click here. Make a note that you will not be able to hear the music track until you download the file.



You can replace Sandy’s Signature by following these step (instructions are for PowerPoint 2010 and 2013):

  1. Remove Sandy’s Signature by selecting it and hitting the Delete key.
  2. Type in your personal signature. If you are going to send this as a PowerPoint presentation you’ll need to make sure that you use a Safe Font like those found here: “Safe Fonts” *
  3. Now animate your personal signature. With the signature selected, navigate to the Animation Tab in the Ribbon. Give your animation the following setting: Wipe | From Left + Duration: 4 seconds + Delay 40:90 seconds.

If you plan on using a Font that is not standard to Windows or Mac, you’ll need to either save it as an image (Cut > Paste Special > PNG) or convert the text to a shape. You can do that by following steps in this tutorial.

To enhance the viewing experience for your recipients, save the file as a PowerPoint Show or a Video before sending it.
