Another crack at code creation

Question

I've tried and failed several times to create a code worthy for the people here, so here's what I have to offer:

Crack this code:

cBdeeRcbWeiOAiigMnjTcxaZJfd

The ||||||||||||| are just word separators

1 decoded character = 3 coded characters

Is the case of the letters relevant?

Aaa=c

aAa=a

aaA=error

I assume by "error" you mean that the code doesn't allow it.

Capital letter is the starting point (in other words, always positive). Letters to the left are subtracted (or negative), letters to the right are added (or positive). Returns an error if the result (or total) is negative.

Solving the hints:

Aaa = 1+1+1 = 3 = c

aAa = -1+1+1 = 1 = a

aaA = -1-1+1 = -1 = ERROR

Solving the code gives:

Which is 4 characters away from:

trying again to say merry christmas

apparently to make something difficult it has to be really complex, the simpler things don't work here..... sigh

I don't think it was too simple, but the two hints really gave it away. Fun puzzle nonetheless.

so you're saying i shouldn't give too many hints or hints that may cause it to be too easy
