Free (and open) holiday greeting cards
On the basic side is the PHP-based sendcard, which is licensed under the OSI-approved Q public license. Though the name implies that you can send a card with this app, all it does currently is send a link to the card, which resides on a server; HTML emails that include the card are not currently part of the application, though that feature is part of the future roadmap and there's even a placeholder for it in the admin config file.
Sendcard integrates easily with PHPNuke and PHPWeb open source content management systems. Cards can include Java, Flash or even QuickTime, adding the "multimedia" element to the experience. Multiple senders and scheduled sending are also part of this application's default feature set. Senders receive a confirmation email when their card has been picked up.Skipping on down...

A default installation of Penguin Greetings provides more than 150 ready-to-use e-card templates that enable you to hit the ground running with your e-card setup. It also by default sends HTML e-cards, and provides a link to access the e-card via a browser for HTML-challenged email clients.Read More...
