I did customize the mini collages at her request to remove the text/labels, so you may see some of these same images appear later on but in different configurations. :) And even though I was making two cards with each image, I felt I had to make some slight changes to each one, so the recipients would know they were special enough for a one-of-a-kind greeting.
On all of the cards, the folds are at the top.
First up - the corals. On the first card, I reduced the size of the clipart to fit inside the Tattered Angels chipboard frame.:
On the landscape version, I kept the clipart at ATC size (2-1/2" x 3-1/2") and placed the chipboard frame at one end just to highlight the flowers and birds nest.
One thing I should note-when I have an A2 card with elements that might go over the edge of the card itself (as with the doily on this card), I use A6 envelopes (4-3/4" x 6-11/16") to mail the card to accomodate the oversized embellishment(s), rather than the usual A2 sized envelopes.

Next up is the teal and violet set...I love the strong colors in this set...
On this set, the only changes I made to the landscape version were to change the size of the image, and accent with a pink bow instead of green:

And last but certainly not least, the pink set...lots of doily edging on this first card:
There was less room for layers of doily-edged papers on the landscape orientation card, but it still works. And the flower and bow accents are changed to green instead of pink...

Happy Leap Day, thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!
