Personalised Christmas cards appear to be something of an obsession in the US, and while most of the results are more cringe-worthy than cute, this long distance creation is an exception.

A husband in Afghanistan along with his wife in the US have found a creative way to be together this holiday season.

By combining two halves of a Christmas card to create one whole 'Merry Christmas' greeting for friends and family, the couple have found a way to join forces in spirit despite being over 11,000 km apart.

Christina Perdue, who remains in New York while her husband is deployed in Afghanistan, said that although she could not be with her husband, they were determined to "make [the card] epic."

After finding the idea online, Perdue sent her husband his half of the poster board along with instructions for how to pose. She then used an app to digitally combine the photos.

"We just wanted to show that no distance can get in the way of love," said Perdue.

"Our family loved it, all our friends love it, everyone has been sharing it all across the internet."
