white space between table rows in gmail etc

Hi guys this is my first post so be kind ;) looking for some help here, been trying to design an image intensive email today and despite reading all the online guide I could find I just can't get it to function properly in gmail and hotmail (which are the majority of the campaigns subscribers are). This is just the start of the ecard there's a load more info to go on it text etc but don't want to carry on until I've got this much fixed at least. Here's a screen grab of what I'm seeing in gmail. Btw the big white block is supposed to be there as text has to go in there my problem is with the white space between the rows. Thanks in advance for any help!
