I havent had the privilege of seeing even a picture of it, but there is a Valentine card made in the 1400s that is on display in a British Museum. The first Christmas Card was commissioned by Sir Henry Cole in 1843 where he had John Calcott Horsley paint a card for him centering around the feeding and clothing of the poor. Although he wasnt the first, Louis Prang is known as the Father of the American Christmas Card because prior to that we imported our greeting cards from England. Greeting cards were original fairly expensive because they were a handmade and hand delivered gift so they were mainly enjoyed and shared by the wealthy. By about the 1850s they became more affordable because of the advances in printing and postage rates were very reasonable.
You, your family and friends will eliminate those negative feelings associated with throwing out cards and create a common bond through participation in this new tradition. I personally know a family who passes a gag birthday gift with an attached card around to each family member as their birthday comes up. Talk about a reusable gift and card. There are many ways that we keep in touch with our family and friends, such as e-mail, text messaging and phone calls. But the majority of people in the US say that they prefer receiving a greeting card because it makes them feel special.
