With JibJab, you can create and send cool video cards that include pictures of yourself or friends. If you're not familiar with JibJab's creations, they are generally musical satires with real heads on animated bodies. JibJab offers video cards for all occasions, from "Baby" to "Sorry." You just need to upload a headshot, and the site takes care of all the rest. Some of the video cards are free, but you have to become a member to access many of the video card designs.

Animoto Video Cards

Animoto puts your photos and video into a beautifully animated digital card. You'll need to become an Animoto member to create a card, but the fee is reasonable considering the quality of the product. This site is less about animating your photos than about a professional presentation of a video that can be accompanied by music and your company logo.
