Hallmark today announces the winners in its recent card-creation contest, “Fuzzy, Frisky and Funny.” Greeting card design and writing hopefuls were invited to create hilarious birthday cards featuring a photo of a favorite four-legged pal. Entrants were encouraged to check out the Hallmark Contest Facebook page for tips on this contest.
Contestants submitted their creations in February. The 39 winning designs will be sold on Hallmark.com beginning April 9. In-store winners will be announced in June and will be featured in Kroger Stores starting in July. Winners each receive $250 and could win an additional $250 if their cards are chosen for in-store sales.
Hallmark judges looked for cards with funny photos and writing that worked well together and could be sent to many different people. Participants could enter a total of three different cards, one in each category – Birthday cards that are just freakin’ funny, Birthday cards that find the humor in aging, and Birthday cards that would make your mama blush.
This is Hallmark’s 31st consumer-created card contest. The 39 winners are from 20 different states and two providences of Canada. Here are the winners in Hallmark’s “Fuzzy, Frisky and Funny” competition:

Also today, Hallmark announces the opening of the latest card competition – “All About Teens.” Consumers are invited to create a sweet or funny birthday or Valentine’s Day card to let a teen know he or she is loved. Cards can be specifically for a girl teen, a guy teen, or can work for either. Submissions will be accepted through April 22.
