Follow these steps to open your e-card:
1. Locate the confirmation number (beginning with EG or PG) in the e-mail.

3. Click on Pick up your e-card.
4. Enter your e-mail address and the confirmation number.
5. Click View E-Card.

I contacted Hallmark who confirmed that it was a scam, that clicking on the link would download a virus and an information gatherer and to delete the email. They also gave the following advice:
