for this you i think you have to use any code language , have to use the server scripting if you know .. here is the initial start up.. also you can use the xml as well..

1. Make the one image and put that at background same like you display as example

2. set the new empty div on it that content the data on that image

3. and on click pass that data on the page and print it in div.

Hope it will help.

Never heard of a mecard but there is a microformat standard called hCard for marking up vCards in semantic HTML. These resources might help:

hCard 1.0 http://microformats.org/wiki/hcard 

hCard markup generator: http://microformats.org/code/hcard/creator

Why not just upload the vCard and meCard to your server and link to them. When a user clicks the link, it gets downloaded. To make a vCard, export the .vcf out of your Outlook (or Mail or whatever you're using). That's what I did on my site and it works great.

If you want the info to be visible, you could make a regular HTML layout, and then make the whole div clickable. Just a thought...

Just a suggestion: it might be nice for the "Call me now" link to have the number in it for people who just want to see the number but not call it immediately, or maybe they want to call you from a different phone like an office phone:
<a href="tel:+123456789">Call Me Now: (123) 456-789</a>
