Thank you card sets in peach and orange

 In response to a generous donation of cardmaking supplies I have created several sets of cards for a wonderful person!!!  Some of the envelopes are 5.5" x 4 1/8" - just a bit smaller than the A2 sized envelopes so I decided to use these to make her a few cards. 
I started with some light peach cardstock and cut cards to fit in the envelopes (3.75" x 10.5) and found some paper that coordinated that I cut just slightly smaller to leave
a border all the way around.  I die cut scallops from the decorative paper, tied a ribbon or fiber between the opening and the edge and adhered these to the front of my cards.  On the one in the lower left hand corner I sponged colour onto the card front before gluing the decorative paper in place.  I watercoloured and sponged the my laser printed circle greetings to add a bit of colour and then adhered them in the openings.  I changed up the ribbon/fiber and the orientation to give them each a bit of a different look.
