Card/Stationary Set

I've been working on this project for some time.  Been wanting to make some card or stationary sets to give as gifts --- here's the first completed one. I started with the box and color scheme.  Next up I assembled the flowers that appear on the front of each card --- from there I created six cards -- all in the Olive Green/Striped Green/Black color scheme.  It was a lot of fun making these cards and once I got started it went fairly quickly.  Half the battle for me is deciding the color scheme/paper/embellishments I want to use on a card --- since these were to be matching cards all that was left to do was decide how to rearrange the aforementioned to make each card slightly different.
So here it is --- My first Boxed Set of Cards for the year!

The Box that houses the cards
There are six cards and six envelopes in this box
