Making Cards from Original Artwork

I love to give original art as gifts and recently I started making cards that complimented the artwork that I was giving. I make reproductions of the piece and add it to the front of a card blank making a neat gift set. That way whoever gets it has something to frame and hang on the wall as well as a matching card that is filled with whatever special sentiments I'm sending their way.

What a great idea!
I know I would love to receive a handdrawn card.
I used to always throw out the cards I got in the mail. Now many of them end up in my scrapbook or on the wall. Cards are becoming a work of art. In your case, they ARE art! Lovely job.
