presentación means business? it looks like presentation It's a cognate. In this case it translates a little better as introduction. So, a business card in Spanish is an "introduction card" like a letter of introduction in English :P

A birthday card is una carta de cumpleaños.

Correction:

The card could also be a card from your parents, a postcard, or a family card. When you send a card to your brother, parents, or grandfather, I think that the card could be called a family card.
