Bring life to your greeting cards! {giveaway}

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day we will be celebrating 22 birthdays, weddings, and graduations.  That doesn’t include our anniversary and Father’s Day.  That all adds up to a lot of greeting cards!

Now, I’d love to say that I hand make all those cards but I don’t.  I’m just not that crafty, nor do I have the time to devote to it.  Plus, I actually really like shopping for cards.  The messages that seem to say exactly what I want them to say and the creativity. Oh, the creativity!  It amazes me how cards have gone from simple folded pieces of paper to having all sorts of embellishments to incorporating audio.  The latest addition?  Cards that come to life!

Hallmark’s newest line of greeting cards “come to life” through the use of a webcam and augmented reality technology.  All that to say, the use of the webcam and the built-in technology in the card makes the characters featured on the cards appear in 3D on your computer screen.

To enter the 3D world of your card, simply visit www.hallmark.com/extra to download the plug-in, then hold the card up to your webcam.  Within seconds, the characters will appear on your computer screen, singing, dancing, or whatever craziness they have planned!  The best part is that, as long as you have your card in hand, you can play the animation of your card as many times as you like…or until you hide the card from your kids (as in my case).  The point is that there is no limit!  Here’s a little example of how they work:

The Hallmark Webcam Greetings are available in Mother’s Day greetings (see, you still have time pick one up before heading over to mom’s house), cards for Grads, Kids, humor, and (coming soon) Father’s Day.  You can pick up a Webcam Greeting at most stores where Hallmark cards are sold and, this is really great, the Webcam Greetings cost about the same as traditional Hallmark cards — $2.99 for standard Webcam Greetings and $5.99 for Webcam Greetings with built-in sound clips!

Ok, now here is your warning:  Your kids are going to love these cards!  I mean love them!!!  My girls cannot get enough of these cards.  Honestly, I think they are pretty fun, too!
